Title Surrey Imperial Yeomanry officer's tunic button
Nationality British
Period 1901-11
Price £30.00

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 'Rich Superior Quality'. It measures 25mm across. The finish is EPNS or just possibly unmarked silver. All first pattern SY badges and buttons are now quite scarce.

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
