Thanks for showing us your collection. A varied mix there. 

Do you have any particular area of interest or do you just collect Great War related bits and bobs?

 

Just one thing...the rosette does not belong on the 1914/1915 Star medal ribbon.

It's from the 1914 Star (which is a different medal to the one you have here) and should be warn on the ribbon bar only rather than the full medal.

 

As you know, it signifies that the recipient spent time within the range of the enemy between 5th Aug 1914 and 22 Nov 1914. The latter date being the end of the 1st Battle of Ypres.

Yes, I am aware the rosette should not be there. It is a temp solution , as the medal came without a ribbon. The rosette is original to the ribbon though.

I used to collect german ww2 , I am slowly replacing those items for ww1.

Headgear is my main area though.

Cap is a post war type. Chinstrap also not the Great War type.  Regards, Paul.

Yes it look like the new specification 1921 cap to me too.

Totally Agree.! Yes it is my great grandads post war replacement. Nothing that he went to war with in 1914, survived more than 6 months. He survived the war , and was never wounded. He was the battalion saddler for the 2nd monmouthshire regiment , he was 40yrs old and ex 7th 27th Devonshires during the Boer war.

He left the army in 1927.

“7th, 27th” as in Royal Fusiliers and 1st Inniskilling Fusiliers?

Not “Devonshire Regiment” then, which was an infantry regiment comprising of regular, reserve and Territorial battalions, but instead a composite Devonshire Yeomanry Cavalry unit of auxiliaries. It’s important not to conflate the two.

Sorry I have no patience. For someone who has no clue.!

 

FROGSMILE has more than a clue. You have no idea of his past.

He was pointing out that you have it wrong when you called your Great Grandfather's ex Regiment as ' Devonshire Regiment ', when it's not, it's two Yeomanry Cavalry Regiments joined together as part of the Imperial Yeomanry, nothing to do with Infantry.

He was trying to help, just incase you thought it was the Devonshire Regiment, that's all.

Hence why he was the Bn Saddler in the Monmouthshire's, because of his Cavalry past.

I obviously missed something.  No offence was meant Lammy.  I was genuinely trying to help.
