Hi,

I recently purchased another set of uniforms belonging to a Senior BSAP officer. In the box of misc odds and ends was this item. I don't think it is a cummerbund as there was one in the box. This item is about 44 inches long and 6 inches wide. In the middle on one edge is a stitch about one inch long that slightly causes the material to pucker. It isn't in any of my books, so just wondering. Any help appreciated.

Thank you Mike. It is really different than the gold coloured one that came in the box. This has no attachment points. Do you know what uniform it went with? I thought the gold one went with the Mess Jacket.

Thank you Mervyn, That does make the most sense. By the way, there was a beautiful Brocade Sword belt included that would have gone well with that hanger you had for sale a few years back.

Robert - if you have a chance could you show a picture of the belt ? There is still a lot of interest in the BSAP

and if you were interested in an officers' pattern dress sword, I had a lady offer one some time ago - I could see if she

still wanted to sell. The shop is closed now - I have retired - all of the medals - incl.a lovely BSAP set with LS&GC

are coming to City Coins Medal Auction in CapeTown in March/April. Best wishes Mervyn
