Another Circle

The Devonshire Regiment was formed in the late 17th century as an infantry regiment,  and was engaged in many conflicts until 1958, when it amalgamated with the Dorset regiment to become the Devonshire and Dorset. They had a base at Topsham barracks in Exeter, a once grand building that I suspect is rather faded now.

The regiment’s badge was an eight pointed star surrounding a circular scroll with Rougemont (Exeter) Castle in it’s centre.

I found this badge on a wall at Coldharbour Mill on Saturday and thought it was a good circle for Cheri’s photo challenge.

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Circle

Cheri at the Daily Post says.

With 2016 officially here, we face forward to take on what’s next. It’s a time of endings and beginnings, so I wanted a broad theme that could be simple, fun, and festive, but also complex and introspective. And so, circle it is.

I found this circle? a few days ago at Escot, in east Devon. It’s part of a sculpture that as a whole, I didn’t find very exciting, but cropping the photo turned out a bit better I think.
