Description

In the late 19th Century the Volunteer Battalions of regiments purchased their equipment through the Territorial Associates. The brown leather Slade-Wallace equipment was frequently only loosely based on the official patterns and produced by private contractors. In 1903 the new brown leather Bandoleer equipment was introduced to replace the Slade-Wallace buff leather. This is a brown leather frog similar the general service MKII with steel buckle and pin, tooled edges and eight copper rivets and washers. Many frogs of this type were produced and worn by volunteers with the Slade-Wallace equipment. This example is in very nice condition with all stitching and metalwork intact. See pages 26 & 27 of Bayonet Belt Frogs Part 1 by Anthony Carter for reference. The price for this scarce item includes UK delivery. L 259.
