  1. My collection of medals from the Great War, most are from medals to members of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and also some from the Welsh Regiment, the South Wales Borderers, a pair to the Monmouth Regiment and some others with a Welsh connection or similar. There are a number od complete trio's and pairs, but also quite a few from split groups. The is a single from a split 1914 Mons Star Trio, another from a split Military Medal and trio group, a single that has been erased and renamed to a DCM winner from his split group. A split 14/15 star trio to a POW, a split trio to a Or who became an officer, then resigned and then post war again became an officer.
  2. hopefully Dave or Graham will comment as cavalry are not really my area, oh and welcome to the forum
  3. another item dies a death on this forum
  4. 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.

    Denbighshire Hussars

    had this a while but forgot to post it here.
  8. sorry I can't help you, never seen the like before, does it have any military markings, AM or WD arrow?
  9. any chance of better close up pics of the markings and the body of the flag? Wartime flags usually have obvious signs of the weave in the fabric
  10. 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;
  11. comparison between usa and uk made mki's, is easiest to see by the lugs
  12. A recent addition, my last badge purchase before the end of 2020. Never seen a pair before, only miss matched singles
  13. 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
  14. textbook WWI british made MKI, lots of these were issued to the Americans before they made enough of their own type the M1917
  15. this forum is very quiet these days, so no surprise you have had no responses.
  16. I think the dunkirk medal is the only one I had previously heard of.
  17. I have never seen any of these, are they privately issued, or purchased by those who are entitled to them ,or just anyone?

    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

    glamorgan yeomanry by Lambourne, it is a poor version but that is typical of the lambourne made badges and appears to have been repaired

    what kind of belt is that:

    as already stated, Sam Browne belt with chinese buckle, the buckle might be a copy from looking at

    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.
