Old Spanish? Side Bag

Recommended Posts

Hello.  I am a collector and an eBay Seller.  I just bought a side bag I believe is Spanish.  Can you please take a look at the photos and help me identify it?

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.  Linas

Yes. From Spain.

It is the (BANDOLERA) "golden shoulder strap" approved in the uniformity regulation of 1943
It is placed from the left shoulder to the right side.
Gold gallon five centimeters wide, forming the embroidery with alternating castles and lions. The gallon is lined with red cloth, placed in such a way that it does not exceed the width of that one.
On the chevron, sliding and to fix it in the center of the chest, an elliptical plate of fire-gilded brass is placed. The dimensions of the axes of the same are eight and five and a half centimeters, respectively. It has in its center and with its enamel colors, the emblem of the Army.
The buckle, pin and corner pieces are made of gold metal. Finish the chevron at its two ends in two hooks to hold the holster (CARTUCHERA). This, built in black patent leather, with gold metal chape, is lined with a scarlet chamois and has the Army emblem in the center of the lid.

    • 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.
