  1. Hi Everyone, Recently I went through dress regulations of several British colonial Military Forces and found that, the lace design for the commanders of these forces were not followed Imperial pattern. In British army and Indian army dress regulations, general officers wore oak leaf and acorn embroidery on dark blue collar and cuff. Commandant of New South Wales Military Forces (in 1895, rank was Major General) wore waratah leaf embroidery instead of oak leaf embroidery according to the dress regulations of New South Wales Military Forces 1895. On the other hand, General Staff officers i.e. Adjutant General, Quartermaster General etc. of Canadian Militia, New South Wales (NSW) Military Forces, Victorian Military Forces wore their own colonial type laces. NSW Military Forces- Waratah leaf lace Victorian Military Forces- Victorian lace Canadian Militia- Maple leaf lace Can anyone give the details of each lace and embroidery please? Cheers Shams

It will highly appreciated, if anyone help me to give details of cord uniform by text or image or both please.CheersShams

  4. Hi Mervyn, After a long time, I hear from you. I am good. How about you? I got some images in internet after watching the movie "My boy Jack" which made me confused. These images were during or after Great war. Even I checked Dress regulations 1900, 1904, 1911, 1928. In DR 1928, it is mentioned about the special badges for Foot Guards. So that I asked this question.
