"Red Tunic with White Facings Circa 1913....Given into the care of the
LF web site by Annette Harrison,
the daughter of
Company Sergeant Major Bill Goodier
1 LF...The jacket was worn
by Bill's grandfather who was a

A set of buttons and shoulder titles

I would think this to be a

Gallipoli Bayonets

This is very rare brass and enamel lapel badge.
In the Autumn of 1941
the 1/5th TA Bn of the
XXth converted to an Armoured Unit in 125 Armoured Brigade.
They were renamed as
108 Regiment RAC,
but continued wearing a LF cap badge
in a black beret.
Following the victory at
El Alemein,the War Office
had a change of mind
and decided that there was
no need for more
Armoured Regiments
and the Unit was disbanded.

I was lucky enough to be the top bidder
on this clarinet and original case
on Ebay.
Each piece is inscribed thus:-
"Boosey and Hawkes
3 1989."
"Band 2nd Lancashire Fusiliers
The owner decribed it as Ebonite,
which appears to me to be very much like Bakelite.?
I wonder who owned it and
what tales it has to tell?

Battle Honours of the XXth regiment

doubt brought home from India .

I have researched that Captain W Kelly was in 125 Brigade of the 42nd Division with the 1/7th Bn of The XXth The Lancashire Fusiliers.
I can find no mention of why he was singled out for this award,nor any mention of a 42 Div Reception Camp.

" Silver Gilt Medal purchased on Ebay by Joe.

1st Bn XX The Lancashire Fusiliers Young Soldiers Match Winner.

Won by L/Cpl Price of D Company.

Could this have been won by the great man in his early service days ?"

Purchased by Joe on Ebay.

The pipe has had 2 owners,the first was obviously a Boer, as the central carving is of the then South African national symbol and motto "Eendract Maak Mag", the bird is the Secretary bird, the national bird of South Africe at that time. The owner has carved 2 dates, 1900 and 1901.

The second owner was an LF, as he has carved around the previous owners efforts, "Lancashire Fusiliers" and "South Africa" the date 1902.
This second carving is of much better quality than the first.

How did the LF come by the pipe?

Maybe I will never know, but it gives great food for thought.

You will I am sure be pleased to know that I was offered this Mace by a Militaria dealer in the West Country and I purchased it.
It arrived today and I am thrilled with it.
The beautiful silver top is engraved:-
"Presented by The Officers of The 2nd Bn Lancs.Fusiliers Italy 1944"
I toyed briefly with the idea of asking the Police to try and back track the item to the thief, but was advised that it would lead nowhere and that the Police would probably want to take it from me as evidence.
I am therefore happy that it is back home.
