Title Surrey Yeomanry collar dog, other ranks, 1911 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1911-22
Price £15.00

This is a die-struck gilding metal badge (41mm high), with minor distortion through age and use. A pair of these would have been worn, one on each side of the collar of the khaki tunic. This design replaced the earlier sword/coronet crest of Lord Middleton, who raised the regiment in 1901.

The SY was first raised in 1794, disbanded in 1848 and later raised again in 1901. It amalgamated with the Sussex Yeomanry in 1922, forming two batteries of field guns as part of a four-battery unit, the 98th (Surrey & Sussex Yeomanry) Brigade, RFA. It served with distinction in both world wars.

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
