20th century

militaria item Baden-Powell photographic buttonhole
- British
This shows quite a nice head-and-shoulders portrait photo of Baden-Powell wearing the hat popularised later by the Boy Scout movement, which he founded. His original glory came from the defence of Mafeking. There were great celebrations throughout the Empire when Mafeking was relieved and this is an example of what this euphoria produced.

militaria item 17th Lancers veteran's buttonhole, unhallmarked silver
- British
The 17th Lancers gained eternal fame in the Charge of the Light Brigade, along with other Light Cavalry regiments, but their use of the skull and crossbones as an emblem goes back to the 18th century. According to King & Kipling's Head-Dress Badges of the British Army vol. 2, this exact design was a sealed pattern of 30th July 1927.

militaria item Lapel pin with Spanish Royal Arms, silver
- British
This shows the Spanish Royal Arms (probably those of Alphonso XIII, king of Spain from 1886 until his death in 1941 in exile in Rome) surrounded by the Collar of the Golden Fleece, all in enamel. These little badges may have been made to order by royalists in exile during the Spanish Civil War.

militaria item Sussex Yeomanry officer's cap badge, 1st pattern
- British
The Sussex Yeomanry was one of the British county volunteer cavalry units, raised in the late 18th century. They amalgamated with the Surrey Yeomanry after WW1 and fielded two artillery batteries between them. This badge dates from the early 20th century, being later superceded by a badge with a title on a scroll underneath.

militaria item East Lancashire Regiment officer's dress cap badge
- British
This design, introduced in 1896, mirrors the issue badge, but in a silver as opposed to white brass finish. The crown is the king's pattern, hence the dating, although these officer's badges were produced up to 1940 or so.

militaria item Bullion badge, Civil Service Rifles
- British
This could be a side cap badge or an officer's collar insignia off the full dress parade tunic of the pre-1914 era. My guess is that the two badges were identical and that the tunic badge was simply used on the side cap.

militaria item RN Petty Officer's cap badge
- British
This is a nice example of the king's crown petty officer's badge worn by the Royal Navy and the Royal Naval Air Service in the early years of the 20th century, indeed technically right up to the introduction of the queen's crown badge in 1953.

testimonials

The sabre arrived perfectly. Magnificent piece.

B V, Spain, 17.08.2016

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
