    Original, Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) WW1 1914 Dated .303 Calibre Service Rifle Ammunition Leather Bandolier (British Boer War Pattern 1897) By Beal Brothers Ltd. L 367 - L 367

    The Ulster Volunteers were an Irish Unionist militia founded in 1912 to block Home Rule for Ireland. In 1913 they organised themselves into the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) to give armed resistance to the prospective Third Home Rule Act (enacted in 1914). With a rival Irish Volunteers being formed by Nationalists in response, outright civil war in Ireland seemed possible. The outbreak of World War 1 intervened and the Act was put in abeyance until after what was expected to be a short war. The UVF was not only organised, but trained to some extent as a military force, and had been armed. It was therefore considerably more advanced as a formed body of men than the similar formations of the New Armies now being created elsewhere. These Battalions were clothed and administered by their raisers in the same way as the locally raised New Army battalions in Great Britain. The UVF were supplied with British equipment including 1897 Pattern ammunition bandoliers which by the outbreak of WW1 were no longer in service with regular British troops. In September 1914, the Ulster Division was formed from the UVF which raised 13 Battalions for the three Irish Regiments based in Ulster: the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, the Royal Irish Fusiliers and the Royal Irish Rifles. The Division remained in the Western Front in France and Flanders throughout the war and took part in many of the major engagements including The Somme. This is an original.303 Calibre Ammunition Leather Bandolier dated 1914 as issued to soldiers of the UVF. Image 2 shows a contemporary photograph of members of the UVF wearing British 1897 pattern bandoliers (see page 7 of ‘The Road To The Somme’ by Orr). Made of brown leather it has 5 ammunition carriers with full flap covers. Each carrier has heavy duty hooped, stitched slots for individual .303 rounds. The bandolier holds 50 individual rounds of ammunition in total and each flap cover has all of its brass stud fasteners. One end of the bandolier is fitted with a heavy duty brass buckle. The centre section of the bandolier has a brass hanging ring. The leather is impressed with the manufacturer’s name Beal Brothers Ltd together with a clear ‘1914’ date (illustrated inset in image 2). All leather and stitching are intact. Price includes UK delivery. L 367
