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.

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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
