Title Surrey Yeomanry mess kit button, 2nd pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1911-22
Price £10.00

This (13mm diameter) is the small button for mess kit (waistcoat and cuffs), also serving for the dress/forage cap. It is unmarked silver or heavily plated.

The SY was first raised in 1794, disbanded in 1848 and later raised again in 1901. It amalgamated with the Sussex Yeomanry in 1922, forming two batteries of field guns as part of a four-battery unit, the 98th (Surrey & Sussex Yeomanry) Brigade, RFA. It served with distinction in both world wars.

This possibly has a lacquered finish, hence no tarnish, and its condition is good.

I received the item today, you had packed it well and there were no problems with customs. Overall I was happy with it although the blade was a little bit worse than I had imagined, however thank you for your efforts.
