Could be the carved wooden one  which stood outside the guardroom.  Maybe now with the RSDG in Edinburgh or the Chester museum.

Freddy, are you talking about the one 3DG used on Nunshigum Parades in Detmoid, or the one which features in the old photos of 3DG memorial which preceded the later one. The old one was used in the camp near Andover,50s.Somewhere in our photo section there could be a photo, since I remember seeing one in the last few months. It was a black and white one, with the Honour Guard around the memorial, but I know not what happened to it, perhaps Home HQ can help. I do not recall it in Chester Military Museum either. Sorry if I  add to the confusion, but it MAY help...

The Feather and Carbine 1951 shows the dedication of the 3rd Carabiniers Memorial by Field Marshall Slim in Perham Down. This Memorial was added to the original 3rd Dragoons WW1 Memorial. Is this Memorial still there?
