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.

Incredibly, I received your shipment today. Super fast delivery, I was expecting it on Saturday. The helmet was, as you said, 100%. The side cap is excellent also...

I am just dropping your company a line to say thank you for the 2nd WW Iron Cross, that my brother has purchased off your site Thursday evening. We received it 1st class today and it is in excellent condition. Many thanks again.
