Bedfordshire Regiment Brown Leather Belt & Two Piece Brass Belt Buckle. Bedfordshire Regiment Brown Leather Belt & Two Piece Brass Belt Buckle.
Very Nice Victorian Bedfordshire Regiment Brown Leather Belt & Two Piece Brass Belt Buckle. Misc 848 - HE 848
This is a very nice Victorian Bedfordshire Regiment brown leather belt and belt buckle. The Regiment was first raised in 1688 as ‘Archibald Douglas' Regiment of Foot’ by Royal order of King James II, during heightened tensions as William of Orange posed a threat to the Throne of the unpopular King. In 1881 the Regiment avoided amalgamation under the Childers Reforms but the numerical titles of seniority were dropped and the Regiment became The Bedfordshire Regiment. It went on to serve during the Burma Campaign, the Boer War and two World Wars. In 1919 the regiment was renamed to The Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment, in recognition of the Hertfordshire men who served with the Regiment during the First World War. The leather belt retains a very nice patina. At one end one half of the brass buckle is stitched on and at the other end there is a brass loop and pin with two leather keepers to make length adjustment. The belt measures 36" long and 1 1/2" wide. The belt buckle is made from brass and is a two piece interlocking type. The buckle is ornately decorated with foliage at the belt loops. The buckle when closed is the pre 1919 Bedfordshire Regimental badge, in the centre it depicts a Hert fording a stream. This is a very nice belt and buckle. The price includes UK delivery. Misc 848
