Was the doublet you mention actually made in the 1920's or was simply worn in that decade, if the former, I would be quite surprised if the buttons were original to it.
The doublet in question. It was privately tailored in the post ww1 era (assuming 1920s) with regimental buttons ( as is common on band uniforms ) and the collars appear to have been to only ones ever used on it. The doublet is to a Corporal bugler that has loops sewn for a long length of five or six medals, and these collar badges could well be ones from his earlier years of service.
I suppose it depended on how picky the senior NCOs were.

Okay, it's nice to see it, to be quite honest, I think without actually knowing the who, what, where and when and so forth, it will remain exactly what it is.

Regarding the 21st Lancers, does anyone know the years their 1Pdr autocannon section was actually extant?
