  1. very nice, Herbert Johnsons have always made quality headgear.
  2. I did consider the bays from the shape of the badge, but not sure if they wore this pattern frock with white collar and cuffs. I had a look on uniformology and they did seem to wear something similar with white facings. I had thought infantry of the line as the ornamental braid is correct for infantry and not for the cavalry as each cavalry regiment had unique braid, 2DG for instance had as shown below. Thanks for pointing back in the direction of the Bays, I shall undertake further research.
  3. thanks for commenting Peter. Always likely to be along shot as to unit id. As for rank it is officers, 2lt to major I think wore the same.
  4. I am trying to id the regiment of this officers scarlet tunic, I assume late Victorian or early 20th century, in fact it is 1881 to 1902 when it is replaced by the other type I own. It is not a royal regiment as the facings are white, but obviously an officers example but it has some subtle differences on the cuff braid and the rear white piping to one I own to the Welsh. It has been robbed of its collar badges, shoulder boards and buttons and has no label inside it. It is badly moth eaten and I don't know what to do with it, just leave it or attempt a restoration as it was thrown in with a job lot of other items I bought. I would be very grateful if anyone can id the unit from which it originated.

    Death Penny

    It was very common in WWI for aircrew to die in training accidents, I think about two thirds of all aircrew who died were killed in this way.
  6. I have one as well along with the standard issued type. Certainly not a modern item.
  7. This type is a copy, though some have argued they are period made private purchase for those who did not get one issued, but that is debated
  8. As I said on the other forum, lovely cap and all correct IMO
  9. A very fine period example, though a bit large to display. I have a door sized example which is just about displayable.
  10. As already stated Lord LT or Deputy LT is my opinion.
  11. A minor point but it was the Welch Regiment that along with the South Wales Borderers were amalgamated to form the Royal Regiment of Wales, not the Royal Welsh Regiment which is what they became after the RRW was amalgamated in 2005 with Royal Welch Fusiliers.
  12. Both look fine tony, the dug up is post 1920 with Welch spelling though is a one piece? and the bimetal is pre 1290 with Welsh spelling. Here are two dug up great war Royal Welsh Fusilers Some more from the RWF, both wars, both spellings
  13. Tony, I have a few Welsh badges, probably a few more than shown in these pictures as these are now out of date.
  14. Whilst I don't have a royal welsh, I do have the RRW and the Welsh Brigade
  15. Tony, the first one is welsh brigade form the 60's or Gurkhas, second is welch and is possibly ok, last is the welsh with the bottom scroll cut off
