Mons' :- Winter 2018

Winter 2018
Mons Military Antiques tries to add to its site sales pages a diverse range of 1914 - 1945 military antiques and collectables, where all spend capabilities are catered for; allowing beginners as well as advanced collectors to enjoy listed items.
Not all stocked items are detailed / site listed. Many items are awaiting description, photography and subsequent listing.
All listed prices, unlike auction houses, are as stated and are with-out buyer premiums. Easy payment terms are also without surcharges making a purchase as easy as possible.
Mons' is always happy to receive the offer of surplus to collection items, either as part exchanges or direct purchase. (As long as a seller is happy / can comply with my buy in regime, see terms 'Buying In').
The 'house-keeping chores' I have started to carry out are on going, with some being a little more time consuming than I would have liked / expected; the organisation of new stock being the worst offender in this respect.
Social media is used to give a 'heads up' and prior warning on some future listings, so my Face-Book and Twitter pages are worth a look.
My LI page tries to promote the need to value our uniformed services and medical personnel.

Mons Military Antiques can be followed via ‘Twitter'....search & follow, Richard Archer@DICKY61ARW

....'Busy times-ahead, and much too do, and catch up on.....please remember its only me doing it all !

'Hope to hear from you soon' !

Best regards....Richard

WW1 BRITISH OTHER RANKS ‘WALKING OUT’ BELT

An item of equipment/wear that was not popular in its day.
A belt made and intended for walking out rather than wear in the line.
A smaller belt than the ‘08 webbing and ‘14 leather belts, this narrow webbing belt was simple in manufacture and ease of wear. Despite this it was not popular and as such was not used in vast numbers. (I think its also fair to state that its production numbers were comparatively small as it served no real war effort purpose, coupled with the lack of interest for actual wear).
Due to this, they are today something of a minor rarity.
Webbing belt material in excellent condition, showing light wear. Markings to the underside faint, possibly dated 1917.
All brass work and fittings present and in good untouched order.
A nice used example of this belt !

Code: 107074Price: 70.00 GBP

WW1 CANADIAN EXPEDITIONARY FORCE ‘TRENCH’ CAP

A very fine example of an attributable ‘Trench’ soft cap to a member of Canadian Military Forces (C.E.F.).
The cap is in excellent used condition, which has been stored and cared for well over the past years.
Cap exterior is in fantastic damage free condition with minor signs of age and wear. Interior is in matching condition being grubby and lightly sweat stained in keeping with its use.
Leather chin band is supple and serviceable, and held in place by two small brass GS buttons.
Cap badge is untouched and has been in situe for the caps life, and held in place by its split pin and identifiable part ID tag.
The cap belonged to Roy Russell 26th BN CEF. He has used a green fibre ID tag to secure the cap badge in place with hand impressed details on one side. Ghosting outline of the tag is clear on the cap head band liner (see images).
When in situe on mannequin head form the cap displays superbly for shape and condition.
Faint Schneider and Son maker marking and part WD mark visible to the cap interior.

Pte. Russell landed in Europe in 1916 and was later wounded. Sold with some photocopy details of Russell’s service.

A very attractive cap, and somewhat unusual in-so-far as its wearer is identifiable.
