Irish Guards Uniform

Recommended Posts

Guest IG1970

My father was an Irish Guards Officer, and, unfortunately due to a house move, we’re finally getting around to clear out some of his kit.

Particularly of interest is three forage caps, two No1 dress (one from the 70s and one from the 50s), and an SD cap (also from the 70s). Cap badges missing but buttons and chinstraps intact.

I’m told by a friend that these are pretty collectable (going for £150+ on eBay), and wondered if anybody had advice on the best way to go about selling them? Is eBay the best way, or perhaps any particular auction houses?

Many thanks in advance.

welcome to the forum, generally ebay is probably your best bet to sell these items. 

Showing some pics here would be good, for reference. 

Usually the earlier dated cap would be worth more but commonly WWII or earlier dated caps fetch better money than newer examples, though Irish guards probably appeal to specialist collectors
