South Bucks Buckinghamshire Yeomanry  Cavalry (Taplow Lancers) Officers Large Pattern Gilt Button

South Bucks Buckinghamshire Yeomanry Cavalry (Taplow Lancers) Officers Large Pattern Gilt Button

Circa 25mm in diameter, fixed shank and back marked Stillwell & Son, London. Some spotting / marks to gilt otherwise in good condition and rare.

For much of its existence the troop’s uniform was that of a light dragoon regiment but in 1863, the uniform was changed to that of a lancer regiment modelled on that of the 12th Lancers. The official title remained the South Buckinghamshire Yeomanry Cavalry but the unofficial title became the Taplow Lancers and the CO himself began signing orders as commander of the Taplow Troop (Lancers) in 1869.

Increasingly, there were problems in finding sufficient recruits within the county and in any case the War Office decided in 1871 to disband independent yeomanry units with less than four troops. In the event, it was decided to accept the inevitable and the Taplow Lancers ceased to exist in June 1871.

Just five Taplow men were serving in the unit at this time, Sergeant W Rance (a butcher), Corporal R Cleare (a victualler), and Troopers J Cleare (presumably the son of the former), H Davis, and C Cross (a farmer’s son).

Birtish Columbia Canadian Victorian / Edwardian Police Medium Pattern Button Kamloops City Police

Birtish Columbia Canadian Victorian / Edwardian Police Medium Pattern Button Kamloops City Police

Circa 19mm in diameter, fixed shank and maker marked Hicks & Sons, London. Silver plated but now dark toned, minor wear to plate on highpoints. It appears the manufacturer made a mistake on the spelling of Kamloops as it is "Kanloops" on the button, but the central crest on the button is correct one for Kamloops in British Columbia, Canada.

The City of Kamloops was incorporated on July 1, 1893. On July 3, 1893 the city appointed its first chief of police and one constable. A second constable was appointed on July 15, 1893. By April 1911 the city police force consisted of a chief of police, a sergeant and two constables. An additional constable was added in 1912. By 1922 the city police force still had a chief of police, a sergeant and three constables and in 1930 a fourth constable was added to the police department. The British Columbia Provincial Police took over policing duties of the city on July 1, 1938. At the time Kamloops City Police, had six members (a chief of police, a sergeant and four constables) Policing was taken over by the British Columbia Provincial Police in 1938 (likely with a sergeant, corporal and four constables.)
