    Coldstream Guards tunic.

    The 1st Tunic is Canadian, Governors General Foot Guards i believe. Or something like that. Andy
  4. I would say £5000.00 at least. From what i have seen on the internet over the years. I do check daily for Guards items to buy. I would say if they went missing how much would that lot cost to buy nowadays. ? Outstanding collection just a shame its to the Coldstream Guards ! Andy Pat, could i be cheeky and ask that if you remove the items from the frame. Would it be possible for me to have some images of the items front and back. Andy
  5. I agree with Jerry on the Crown, post 1953. Andy

    Cloak/Cape Fittings

    I have to say that i do believe they are British made. The chain and hook are identical to the Cloak/Cape fittings i have of another Regiment. Thanks again for replying to this Thread. Andy

    Grenadier Guards musicians have the cypher struck on the ball, the grenade you show is just a variant. I believe it would be hard to date to be honest. Andy Ive just realised, if that grenade has a slider ( i believe it has ) it will date from around 1903-6 onwards. Andy

    I think you'll find that Musicians wear the Grenade with the cypher struck on the ball of the grenade and not a plain grenade. Also the grenade as a cap badge was or has been worn from about the 1830-40's. Andy
  16. Thanks service pub, that's a nice one. Andy
  17. ​Stuart, was the Pagri intended to come off the hat ? Sorry if silly question. Andy
  18. ​Thank you Stuart. Andy
  19. ​Stuart, could you tell me if the cap star is lugged or has it a slider. Would it be possible to have a close up picture of the front and rear if possible. Many thanks Andy
  20. ​Hi, would it be possible to have a copy of the top picture please. Andy

    Grenadier Guards Insignia.

    Leigh, i'm new to this forum. my main interest are collecting badge's ( grenade ) to the Grenadier Guards. I am and have been now for many years trying to find out when the Grenade ( metal ) was first worn as a cap badge. I know Kipling and King say from 1898, i believe this to be wrong. The Grenade was worn during the Crimea, on the albert cap/bonnet, however this may not have been metal. There are loads of photographs out there of Grenadiers wearing the Grenade and indeed the Pagri badge. Many of these photo's predate 1898. When i can i'll start posting some photo's. Cheers Andy
