militaria item 49th Bengalis officer's cap and title, stamped 'silver'
- British Empire
This unit was raised in 1917 for garrison duties along the lines of communications in Mesopotamia (Iraq). The regiment did not see combat, except in the post-war period where they took part in the hostilities in Kurdistan. The regiment was disbanded in 1920. It comprised mostly Bengalis Hindus with a lesser proportion of Bengali Muslims.

militaria item Zhob Levy Corps pouch badge, hallmarked silver
- British Empire
After the annexation of the Zhob District in Baluchistan (1889), the Zhob Levy Corps was raised and came under the control of an English officer (Major), who would have been posted as a Political Officer, not as their commandant (Political Officers were the forerunners of what later became the Indian Political Service).

militaria item Foot Guards gorget, 1816 pattern
- British
Regarding the regiment, the Grenadiers had a very specific gorget with multiple pierce work on both wings, the Scots Guards normally had '3rd Guards' engraved on both sides at the tips, therefore, by elimination, this is almost certainly a Coldstream Guards example. The Dighton watercolours of the period appear to confirm this.

Four battalions of militia were formed in Waziristan totalling 3,200 men.

militaria item Yorkshire Militia (?) officer's crossbelt pouch badge
- British
This die-struck badge is almost certainly of the York Militia (Rose of York and a blank plinth for a potential battle honour). The other possibility is Hampshire Militia, who also used the rose as a unit emblem. The badge may well be unhallmarked silver or heavy duty EPNS. As yet untested for either.
