Title Surrey Yeomanry officer's tunic button, 2nd pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1911-22
Price £10.00

This (19mm diameter) has a silver finish, and is marked 'Firmin' on the reverse. It replaced the earlier button with Lord Middleton's crest and would have been worn on dress uniform and mess kit right up to WW2, the regular Royal Artillery button replacing it on Field Service dress after 1922.

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.

This is tarnished, but the silver finish is still in good shape.

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
