  1. 3rd TF Bn of the South Wales Borderers, the Brecknockshires 1/1st through to 3/1st Bn's wore this with only the 1/1st seeing overseas service. One piece in brass.
  2. A recent pick up. Interestingly he is said to have been born in 1882 and in 1883 in different files, mind the same applies to my late father. Red tunic and trousers named to him, with Welsh regiment buttons and collars, the tailors moved in 1911 so must date to before then, though he must have carried on using it as he did not become a major until late during WWI. It came with the trousers and both the tunic and them have some moth damage but not too bad when you consider it is over 100 years old. I am very pleased to get this for an officer in my home town regiment and the ability to find out so much from the research is just great. A member on another forum did some of the research for me without being asked, which was great as some of it I could not find.

  3. Picked this up yesterday in an antiques center near to me. Nicely marked twice to the RWF with two sets of service numbers, one has been overstamped with side ways I's, so I assume it was re issued or the owner had his number changed, though the former is more likely.
  4. 1914-15 star for Private Ralph Astbury (#24568) of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, probably part of the 11th service Bn. good that it still has its original ribbon on it.
  5. Picked up yesterday local to me. The 1914 dated teapot is in very good condition and as an early item is quite rare to see. It having flowers on the other side suggest that it was converted mid production to add the patriotic emblem and adds wait to it being a very early piece, that and the date and it having only 4 allies on it. The 4 mugs all date from after the end of the Great War and are all in a poor condition, though were priced accordingly and still display well IMHO. I also picked up the Jack Johnson shell case crested ware from the same seller, again for a very good price. The name derives from a well known US boxer and would these days be considered not very PC I think, as he was black and the German shell released a big cloud of black smoke when it exploded.
