Tunic Identification - Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Gents,

I need some help to identify the following tunic. It looks like a 'Guards pattern' with a Guards pattern lace, ' Firmin & Sons Ld - St Martins Lane' marked buttons and a stamp on the inside 'Inspected RMC 3 - 11 - 1911'. What kind of tunic could it be? What is the abbreviation 'RMC' stands for? Royal Military College? Sandhurst or Canada?

Thank you for your comments.

Hello . I think that the tunic certainly is for a musician .but its not Swiss. Its much British in Style an even manufacturing.

Thank you for your comments. I tried to search for the Swiss origin, but the only result was the ebay auction on your link. I think the seller is not sure about the origin, beacause at the end of the description there are keywords as 'Foot Guards, Grenadiers, Fusiliers, British Army, Uniform. Georgian era. Switzerland'.

If it is not British the stamp on the inside is strange.

I've found some interesting photos about Guards bandsman uniforms. All of them are from early 20th century.

The word Inspected followed by a date is a typical Royal Marine stamping. From the buttons this is Royal Marine Artillery. The letter C is for Chatham.

Thank you William. I've learnt a lot about the stamps from your comment.
