Magnificent WW1 Original Postcard of Scots Guards on the march - pipers to the front!
One of my favourite WW1 images of a guards battalion on the march - are we downhearted - No. Postally unused and no corner wear, slight wrinkles from storage in an album. Love the fact they can puff on pipes and smoke at that pace!

Original Victorian Photograph - Army Bandmaster - Photographer Penrith, Cumbria
A small circular image mounted on a square card, 9.1cm square. Image is 4.8cm in diameter. I have slightly enhanced the close up image so you can get a good view of the cap with the Victorian crown bandmaster's cap badge. It is however, very clear without the need for enhancement. Penrith, Cumbria photographer. Some wear to card edges and some fade to image. A rare image.
