EASTERN GLAMORGAN LOCAL MILITIA

Recommended Posts

A button that I found recently whilst metal detecting near the market town of Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales.

Around the edge it says 'EASTN GLAMORGAN LOCAL MILITIA'.

Its lost some of its gilding but retains its rear loop and is in a decent condition. Not being a militaria collector, however I would imagine that there won't be many of these around. Quick bit of research....

Eastern Glamorgan Regiment of Local Militia raised in 1808 - under John Price of Llandaff. It was disbanded in 1816. A rare button of a Militia that only existed for 8 years!!!

 A beauty indeed. I doubt if anyone will ever find another one like it. Do you plan on repurposing it or displaying it a certain way?
