Product Description


St. Edward’s Crown replaced the Tudor Crown or the King’s Imperial Crown by the command in 1953 of Queen Elizabeth II.Such use of the crown is only by the personal permission of the sovereign. The Tudor Crown arches were not being dipped in the centre as the St. Edward’s Crown. Point to note, the warrant officer class II crown was the same insignia as the major’s insignia. However, the warrant’s crown was the smaller version to it. Many, though not all, of the derived designs around the world were updated to match. Today both the major and the warrant officer’s crown is the St. Edward’s Crown. The Major’s crown is worn on both epaulettes of all uniforms except the Ceremonial Dress. The crown is worn on both shoulder boards of the Ceremonial Dress.

Since the Caribbean defence and cadet forces adopted the British Army system we also changed insignia crown. Active Gear has a wide range of Major’s crowns to choose from. The metal and embroidered crowns are all sold in pairs. We sell high quality worsted white crowns on khaki or scarlet felt and embroidered crowns sewn on British Woodland DPM or Olive Green rank slides and can include name of force.
