Here is a selection of militaria from this category:

[ Show all ]
militaria item Bronze stirrup
- British
This military stirrup (military because of its weight and the shell device, which helped protect the stirrup from being cut away by a sword blow) is the type found all over Europe at this period, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and call it British because it was found in England (in a barn).

militaria item Postilion's spur?
- European
This is probably a north European item and the ironwork would indicate that it was fixed to the horseman's boot permanently (the two small projections at the top would appear to be iron staples/nails that would have been fixed into the heel of the boot). It probably had a small 1cm-diameter spike rowel, now largely disappeared.

militaria item Iron rowel spur
- German
Rowel spurs first appeared in the 14th century. Originally the shanks were very long (in the Gothic period), getting progressively shorter as time went by. This classic design was worn well into the 17th century throughout northern Europe, and would have been standard fare in the Thirty Years War and the English Civil War.

militaria item Bridle boss
- Unknown
This could be a French, Dutch or even a US Union bridle boss and one would have been riveted on each side of the bridle. It is a die-struck brass badge (2.7cm top to bottom) and its condition is clean with remarkably little wear.

militaria item Early medieval jointed horse bit
- European
This form of bit would have been worn by military and civil alike throughout the period of the Crusades. In a modified form, this snaffle bit is still in use today. It is of iron lapweld construction, the central elements being hollow.

testimonials

The knot has arrived safely and it looks great thank you.

J G, New Zealand, 06.02.2012

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.
