Default Clothing Regulations

Could somebody tell me what editions of Clothing Regulations existed between that of 1894, and that of 1914. If you have an edition between these two I would appreciate some advice thanks.

I am attempting to establish when lanyards were first issued for clasp knives as part of the free kit and necessaries provided to the British soldier.

They were not issued in 1894, but were in 1914, so I presume at some stage in the intervening 20 years it happened.

A lot of claims have been made regarding the introduction of the white lanyard worn by the RAA, mostly complete rubbish, and I am crossing the 't's and dotting the 'i's as part of some work for the RAA History Sub-Committee.

Thanks, Keith

At least:

1894
1898
1904 Militia only
1904 Regular
1909 SR only
1909 Regular
1914

All these are in Cambridge University Library.

I would like to help with your specific query but my extracts are extracts re. badges .......... twas ever thus.

I think the GWF had an extensive thread[s] on lanyard issues.
