Title Dorset Yeomanry epaulettes, other ranks
Nationality British
Period c 1830
Price £40.00

These are typical of the first half of the 19th century, when epaulettes still had a practical function of defending the shoulder from a sabre blow. One button remains, marked 'Blandford Troop YC', one of the DY troops of this period.

They are made of brass with a reinforced tinned iron underlay which holds the scales together.

Their condition is good for their age, though one button is obviously missing and there is one small age crack to the edge of one of the epaulettes.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
