After the war of 1866 the Kingdom of Hannover was annexed by Prussia. Allready in 1870 hannovrian troops fought with the prussians in the franco-prussian war. In recognation of their assistace and to form an esprit de corps, some of the newly raised hannovrian troops received in 1901 the Gibraltar cufftitle, to commemorate the participance of hann. during the Peninsula war and the defence with the british of Gibraltar against the french. The title was worn by FR73, JR79 and JB10.

thank you for that, learn something new every day

Due to a lack of space, I change my mannequins regularly and I try to compose an outfit that fits a particlar event or period. This one I called 'Nach Paris!', and shows a Füsilier of the 73 hannovrian fusilier regiment in august 14, when they left Hannover 'to Paris' for a short, glorious and victorious war, their helmets and uniforms adorned with flowers....

Superb display Eparges, thank you for sharing it with us. Well photographed, too.

I thought some members might be interested in this particular mannequin I've finally got round to buying. I've never been sure on how best to display kit which otherwise seems to live in boxes, so have finally taken the plunge. I felt that this figure had a youthful face, but at the same time a suitably 'soulful' expression. Whatever; this has just cost £83 delivered from Germany in four days (one being Sunday). Its brand new, very well made and wears a uniform (tailored for me), rather well. I only wish I still had the same youthful figure.

PM me if anyone wants more pictures or details on where they can be bought etc.

Thanks Clive, I'll make a note on asking for the extra discount on not quite perfect frames, it all helps.

'The Range' stocks a <cough> range of deep frames, certainly the Hull store does, I don't know if it is a country-wide chain though.

Cheers,

Hello Clive

Framed is a miniture replica of my former regiment( Lord Starthcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) Guidon or Battle Honors Flag, we had a Regimental reunion a couple of months ago & I picked it up through a silent auction. I'm afraid the frame cost more than the item, but well worth it.

Hi Bob

Very nice to have such a Regiment replica.........particularly as you were attached to it. Thanks for explaining what it was.

I'm lucky that my framer of personal items doesn't charge the earth!

Hi Grumpy, thanks for sharing your 'heavy metal' display, quite exciting possibilities for your permanent arrangement. May I suggest that the bed plates form the corners and border for the rest of the material and perhaps raise the smaller badges by about 1/2" using small backing squares slightly larger than the other badges, by doing that the larger items won't "overpower" the smaller ones. Please excuse me sticking my nose in too far, but I get excited when I see good material. Please let us see the final display. You have some great items to work with.

regards

I acquired a large frame some time ago. It was very tatty when I bought it. This is it after the wood had been restored and a new backing fitted.

My main interest is in the Army Chaplain's Department, but also other non combatant roles, and with a limited amount of space I have to rotate things around every now and again.

I like the idea shown earlier of changing uniforms on mannequins and I am going to have a go at that, so watch out for future photos.

My chaplains display contains items from the Boer War up to the Post WW2 era. I suppose one of the 'problems' with a collection focusing on one unit is in segregating the various eras. I haven't managed that, partly because I know what everything is. Perhaps one day I shall have to change things around by era. Perhaps a project over the winter when I sort out the communion sets which are in store elsewhere just now.

Do many of you collect paperwork and how, I wonder, do you offer it for display? With an eye on conservation I have been unsure about this. I have some things in flip over display booklets which you can get in a lot of main stationary stores, usually in A4 size with 20 or so pages. I have to keep them in the bookcase to stop my 2 daughters getting their hands on 'em though! I happen to think a lot of that sort of small item can have a lot of period charm but its hard to know how to display it properly.

I have a couple of the upright square Ikea display cabinets, one of which is temporarily annexed by my wife - see photo of caps.

Regards

Matt
