At the request of the Brigade of Gurkhas, the 14th/20th Hussars adopted the kukri as an arm badge to commemorate their close wartime association.

All ranks of The King’s Royal Hussars continue to wear the crossed kukris on formal dress. In 1964, the 2nd Battalion of the 6th Queen Elizabeth’s Own Gurkha Rifles adopted the 14th/20th King’s Hussars Hawk or Prussian Eagle as an arm badge. This was extended to the 1st Battalion in 1966. The Royal Gurkha Regiment continue to wear the Hawk and it occupies a corner on all regimental pipe banners.
