militaria item 49th Bengalis officer's cap and title, stamped 'silver'
- British Empire
This unit was raised in 1917 for garrison duties along the lines of communications in Mesopotamia (Iraq). The regiment did not see combat, except in the post-war period where they took part in the hostilities in Kurdistan. The regiment was disbanded in 1920. It comprised mostly Bengalis Hindus with a lesser proportion of Bengali Muslims.

militaria item Zhob Levy Corps pouch badge, hallmarked silver
- British Empire
After the annexation of the Zhob District in Baluchistan (1889), the Zhob Levy Corps was raised and came under the control of an English officer (Major), who would have been posted as a Political Officer, not as their commandant (Political Officers were the forerunners of what later became the Indian Political Service).

militaria item North Waziristan Militia pouch belt badge
- British Empire
This exotic unit was raised under Lord Curzon's famous 'forward' frontier policy starting in 1900 when, in the North West Frontier Province, the army was withdrawn from tribal territory and replaced with disciplined tribal irregulars under British officers. Four battalions of militia were formed in Waziristan totalling 3,200 men.

militaria item Probyn's Horse belt plate centre, white metal
- British Empire
This would have been worn until the amalgamation of Probyn's Horse with the 12th Cavalry in 1922. It would appear to be an other ranks example and was worn on a rectangular white metal plate. Probyn's Horse became King Edward's Own Lancers in 1906, having sported the Prince of Wales title since 1876.

militaria item 1914-18 Surrey Yeomanry shoulder title
- British
This is the classic war time badge, worn on both shoulders by the troopers and NCOs of the SY. It was probably worn after the 1922 amalgamation with the Sussex Yeomanry until the introduction of cloth titles in WW2. Surprisingly, it is rather harder to find than the cap badge.
