Peace - Early United Nations ( UN ) Peacekeeper 's Beret with Enamel UN Badge

The vendor told me this was the property of a Royal Northumberland Fusilier who served in Korea, which would date it to the early 1950s. Unfortunately he could not recall his name. No makers marks or personal details on the beret. Badge has some slight enamel loss to top outer ring, gilt still bright. No moth, stains or damage to outside. Some signs of having been worn to the inside, but a good clean beret overall.

Please note the head is for display and is not for sale.

Scarce Boer War vintage Victorian Yorkshire Regiment ( Green Howard's )Undress Other Ranks Field Service / Side Cap - dated 1898

In lovely condition with no moth or damage or pen marks. With original Victorian pattern Green Howards Yorkshire Regiment Cap Badge with two original dark toned loops the reverse and two sweat / braising holes. Given the black cloth colour I believe this is a undress cap. Internal War Department white painted WD with central arrow and date 1898. Service wear to inside rim, with a few small holes in the inside lining, otherwise superb for age. This was apparently worn by No 1319 Edward Henderson of the Yorkshire Regiment, but there is no attribution in cap. He served in South Africa until later in 1902.

Regret I will not post to North America on account of textile import restrictions.

Scarce WW2 Royal Navy Sailor / Ratings Uniform - H.M. Submarines Cap Tally and Photo - all attrbuted to K. Pegler

All of these naval items came together including the photo. The cap tally was badly knotted and marked with blanco, which I have gently cleaned and lightly pressed. It is very much a working rig, with some yellowing, occasional stains and sun fade. The cap is bruised and battered, the jersey has a few small snag holes to it, complete with Nelson collar, white top and original bell bottom pants, plus his ditty bag with threads, a needle and with a Leading Seaman's bullion patch. All as originally found and scarce. Full stop after "submarines" on the cap tally.

Will post to a UK address only.
