Hi Guys,

Wonder if any can help me identify these two uniforms, that I suspect are British, but I am not sure.

Also if they can be dated.

Thanks,

 

Kind regards Karsten

I think these are both made up for theatricals or costuming. :( 

The braid on the top one is the wrong colour and weave to be British Army cavalry or Horse Artillery.  The flat buttons with the POW feathers are wrong and may not even be military and the point-up chevrons on the right sleeve are not a British device.  

The second one looks to be a copy of a late 1800s - Zulu War era? - infantry tunic but the colour of the collar is wrong and it looks far too flimsy to be an issue uniform.  Also wrong buttons.

Below are examples of an RHA tunic and one from the Grenadier Guards, both modelled from the period these two are meant to represent.
