A truly wonderful example of a British Army Household Cavalry uniform of the Royal Horse Guards or Blues and Royals as they were latterly known.

Dating from the mid to late 20th century this uniform comprises of the following items. * Original troopers cavalry helmet with red horsehair plume and original liner. In excellent condition. * Front and rear plates or cuirass with shoulder scales and white leather waist belt. * Aguilettes of gold braid with matching epaulettes. * Blues and Royals dress tunic in wonderful condition. * Shoulder cross belt with black patent leather pouch with Royal cypher. * Near pair of thigh high black leather cavalry boots. (Not photographed) * Pair of buckskin riding breeches. * Pair of white leather riding gauntlets. * Various white leather sword knots, straps and bayonet holder. Please note this entire set will show signs of fault, wear and age. It’s a genuine military issue uniform which has been retired. An absolutely fantastic display piece from Britains longest serving Monarch. The mannequin and hat stand (candlestick!) are not included.
