Great War Period West Riding Regiment Embroidered Badge

WR

WR1

A super example of embroidered needlework, showing the badge and crest of the West Riding Regiment. The skilful use of the threads give the impression of fur on the lion. What some people forget, is that it was usually the men that did such work, either as a form of therapy if wounded, or as a way of passing time.

Frame measures 15″ x 13.5″. Slight foxing to the background, but the threads are in excellent condition. One of the best examples I have seen, simple, yet superbly done.

Please contact me for best way to post, or collect preferred due to glass.

2nd Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers

Sino-Japanese War, Shanghai 1937

Mounted Photograph

rwf 1 rwf 2

A very rare survivor. A large (760mm x 510mm) mounted photo of the 2nd Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers, Sergeants Mess, taken in Shanghai 1937. What makes this photo really nice is that they are all named, and due to it’s large size, the men are all easily identifiable. The photo is quite distressed, with creases, tears and marks, however because it is a big size this does not effect the image, or identification. It is rare to get anything British related to the Sino-Japanese war, and this is a fantastic opportunity for the RWF collector to acquire a piece of Regimental history.

Price: £45 (please email for postage options – will need shipping between two pieces of hardboard, or collection from a fair)

1st Battalion South Staffordshire Regiment Photo Album – 1926 India

IMAG0431IMAG0432IMAG0433IMAG0434 IMAG0435IMAG0437IMAG0436 IMAG0438

“A Pictorial Souvenir and History of the First Battalion The South Staffordshire Regiment, Bombay, India, 1926” Lt Col J R Minshull-Ford DSO MC Commanding A fantastic collection of 42 original photographs, the large ones being 11″ x 8″, showing the 1st Battalion South Staffordshire Regiment whilst stationed in India. The start of the book gives an excellent Regimental History, with the Great War period being particularly detailed as to their locations and actions. The photographs themselves are original and stuck in, not printed onto to the pages and so are of good detail, even through a loup. There are many MC, DCM and MM winners shown. They show each part of the Battalion, from the Officers and SNCO’s, Corporals, each Platoon (split into each Company), through to the various sports teams, Lewis Gun Team, Quartermasters staff and lots more. The covers are a bit stained and the binding is a little loose, with one of the plates come unstuck. However they are all in excellent condition. A superb collection of photos for the Regimental Collector and Researcher.
