I buy regularly from the auction house in question and have never seen them hold a specialist militaria sale. Neither was I aware that they hold themselves out to be experts on militaria.

Whilst there was a Monmouth Cavalry unit in existence between circa 1794-1816 the letters do not fit. Glamorgan did split their Yeomanry into west, central and east title wise, but I have not seen...

Hi Griff,
Approx 40mm dia & no loops, rather three sets of double wires. I’ll see if I can get a mould for you.

Rob,
You might want to type is name into the search box of the London Gazette which should bring up any further promotions. The information will be similar to that shown in Tim’s post.

They can be found, it just takes patience. Here are some to the GRVC & the VBs of the WR. What is particularly nice is when you pick up photos of them being worn.

There should be no confusion. If you simply consult the Regimental History- History Of The Services Of The 41st (the Welch) Regiment, Lomax 1899. Bottom of page 293 on.

Henk,

You are incorrect. The 3rd Glamorgan RVC were the 4th VB Welsh Reg't, it is just that they did not change their title after 1881.
