Title Surrey Imperial Yeomanry officer's tunic button
Nationality British
Period 1901-11
Price £30.00

This shows Lord Middleton's personal crest surrounded by the regimental title. He raised the regiment in 1901. This unit became Queen Mary's Own SY in 1911, receiving new badges and buttons reflecting the change of title. The tunic was patterned on that of the New South Wale Lancers - khaki with a scarlet plastron.

The reverse is inscribed 'Rich Superior Quality'. It measures 25mm across. The finish is EPNS or just possibly unmarked silver. All first pattern SY badges and buttons are now quite scarce.

Hi Chris, just to let you know my sword knot arrived first thing this morning and I am very happy with it and the fast service.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
