Hi

I bought some trench art that arrived the other day and this was in the bottom of the box, I'm guessing this is a Buff belt but I've not seen the belt buckle before I think its Queen Victoria Crown but I was wondering which regiments wear this? or it is a standard belt that all regiments can wear. the buckle seems good quality the belt is small I don't know it if this is a genuine item or not.. was surprised to it in the box. so hoping someone could help me :)

You see old Cabinet cards from many Units with these being worn, you would need to check clothing regulations for exact details. From what can be seen in the images the buckle looks to be real to me although they are not uncommon.

A nice bonus then!  And a buckle 'worn with pride', or at least brick dust.  These used to be fairly common even this side of the Great Salty and I think some of the Canadian militia units still issue them to bands and colour parties who wear the uniforms of that period on occasion.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
