A day at the shops.

    I like the pith as well.
    I wish some of the items I am after could be found at these prices.

    Hi Ralph, the sensible price is one of the advantages of collecting British items, though some are very expensive and will even make a lot of TR German items look cheap.

    Gotta love the pith.

    Hi Harry,

    I do like when they use the older terminology for the Regiments, as you point out in this case for the 24th Regiment of foot, whilst a have a few marked to the 23rd regiment of foot and one to the 37th Regiment as well, all but one are uniforms. It really gives them a sense of the regiments history, which in many cases would have stretched back for hundreds of years.

    The 24th and the 23rd, along with the 41st and the 69th and the 43rd are all now part of the Royal Welsh Regiment.

    PS my 6000th post.
    Regards,

    Jerry

    Nice finds Jerry, I bet a pound that the pith was used in a production of The Pirates of Penzance, seeing it has a costumiers name in and a spike has been added ie " I am the very model of a modern major general", the jacket could well have been used in the same production,you would'nt believe just how many rare pieces of militaria end up in theatrical costume shops, ive even had a nice Heer NCO's cap from one before but had to return it , damn it, the things they hire out is ridiculous

    After some research I found the former owner of the SWB mess dress, though it had his name spelled incorrectly. I have only found out a little so far with a listing on the London Gazette for his appointment from the cadets to a 2nd LT in the SWB dating 2nd Sept 1932.

    http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issu.../5623/page.pdf

    He was David Reginald Llewellyn -without the A- and he appears to have been born in 1912 and died in 1941, though I have yet to find out when, where or how this occurred.

    Just found this listing on the CWGC site.

    CWGC - Casualty Details

    He was a Captain by the date of his death and was with the 1st Bn SWB and was the son of Colonel William Cllydwyn Llewellyn who was high Sheriff of Glamorgan in 1925. his brother Glyn Herbert also fell during WWII.

    Also found this where his father is mentioned in a will. He was also 24th Regiment of foot (SWB).
