  1. Graham, that is a MKI lug which were fitted to MKI helmet shells to produce the helmet MKI* as well as on some MKII's made during the late 1930's and into WWII. this type was never used during the great war. the three type of helmet lugs used;
  2. comparison between usa and uk made mki's, is easiest to see by the lugs
  3. some of these badges were made in such low numbers that they are almost hand made one offs for each badge. This Montgomeryshire Yeomanry Cavalry badge is very much of the same type, hand made in low numbers, each one an individual badge
  4. A recent addition, my last badge purchase before the end of 2020. Never seen a pair before, only miss matched singles

    How to Research British Medals?

    if you ever had a paid subscription for ancestry, mine has lapsed, you still get access to the MIC's and can also take advantage of the free access that they offer to all records every now and then, usually during the anniversary of major military events such as armistice day commemorations

    glamorgan yeomanry by Lambourne, it is a poor version but that is typical of the lambourne made badges and appears to have been repaired
  11. unsure of date, but probably post WWII, band members podium drape for the percussionist. A lovely and very uncommon item with it and the others being shown in use by the band at Caernarvon castle in 1989.

    Any ideas on these?

    unusual to see Boer war trench art shells, but they are not particularly finely worked and imo I would have said nearer £30, maybe a bit more because they are unusual, all depends on what buyers are willing to pay.
