Title Surrey Imperial Yeomanry officer's tunic (cuff) button
Nationality British
Period 1901-11
Sold

This shows Lord Middleton's personal crest surrounded by the regimental title. He raised the regiment in 1901. This unit became Queen Mary's Own SY in 1911, receiving new badges and buttons reflecting the change of title. The tunic was patterned on that of the New South Wale Lancers - khaki with a scarlet plastron.

The reverse is inscribed 'Jennens & Co. London'. It measures 19mm across. The finish is EPNS or just possibly unmarked silver. All first pattern SY badges and buttons are now quite scarce.

testimonials

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.
