Royal Northumberland Fusiliers (RNF) Officers Stable Belt - Regimental Colours

Royal Northumberland Fusiliers (RNF) Officers Stable Belt - Regimental Colours

A scarce officers stable belt, not often encountered and unlike the later RRF stable belt which was worn by all ranks, this was worn by officers only and purchased by the PRI, not official issue. Slightly narrower than the later RRF stable belt at 6.2cm tall. Slight signs of service wear and a few small marks but about 9 / 10 condition. Introduced in the early 1950s and worn either with short-sleeve order or the later pullover. Gosling green central strip with burgundy red coloured outer stripes. Would prefer not to post to the USA unless by prior agreement (as I have had problems exporting textiles to the USA).

See http://www.stablebelts.co.uk/ for identification.

Directly from a former officer of the regiment.

Scarce WW1 Kitcheners Blues Side Cap, Wallet and Photograph - attributed

Scarce WW1 Kitcheners Blues Side Cap, Wallet and Photograph - attributed


A scarce WW1 Kitcheners Blues cap, with red piping (as per the Northumberland Fusilier red pagri stripe), a brass other ranks cap badge on lugs, a khaki wallet named in Ink to H L Taylor 12290 9th NF, the cap with a monogramed HT sewn to inside lining, a post war reunion dinner photo (large format mounted on card) B Company 9th Northumberland Fusiliers. B company were the toffs, otherwise known as the Burberry set, and when travelling around often mistaken for officers in mufti, which caused some amusement on occasion as retold in the Battalion Regimental History. The Latter confirms 12290 H L Taylor as embarking with the Battalion in 1915 for France and Flanders and also that he was a member of B Company. Later commissioned in the RAF. An interesting lot of related items which all came together, including a small picture of his gal, found in the lining of the wallet.

Pre Boer War, 1897 Dated 1st Lincolnshire Regiment Other Ranks Scarlet Tunic - Attributed

Pre Boer War, 1897 Dated 1st Lincolnshire Regiment Other Ranks Scarlet Tunic - Attributed


Some moth, minor holes and the odd stain / black paint mark. Despite all these small faults, it is a complete and untouched example with all of its QVC buttons, White worsted Lincoln epaulettes, original white metal collar badges and stencilled in white paint to inner liner "1st Lin" army number "4576" and "7 97" which matches the original dated label which is dated "Sep 1897" and the WD arrow plus measurements. On the leather strap inside the collar, there is an ink annotation " D / 4576" and I think the name "Hill". Billion marksman's badge and single good conduct stripe to bottom left sleeve. White facings. A rare survivor.

Army number 4576 would put the date of enlistment as between 20th January 1896 and 1st May 1897.

Regret unable to post to USA due to textile import restrictions.
