City of London Yeomanry, Rough Riders, Horse Crop.
In really nice condition, hardly any wear, horse crop with metal top having the letters RR underneath a Kings Crown. The KC would place this in the WW1 time period in my opinion.
May i add that the Rough Riders ID is only a guess as it does appear to be two ''R'''s facing each other, let me know if i have it wrong please. Pete.

German BGS M42 Helmet Shell.
Now here is quite a scarce postwar helmet being a reused wartime M42 helmet shell repurposed for the BGS. Early postwar M42 shells had the liner pin holes welded over, chinstrap bales added to the sides and a new top nut for liner suspension. This example has nearly all its period early rough BGS finish to the outside and its slate grey finish to the inside. The markings have been scaped at the rear of the shell, appears to be CLK but not 100% clear. Its a large shell. This would be a great opportunity to finish off a srace BGS helmet with the addition of a liner.

WW1 French Renault ''FT'' Table Model/ Souvenir Inkwell.
A very nice detailed pot metal model of a Renault tank rising above a German trench. The top turret swivels, the only damage i can see on the tank is a split to one of the tracks. The model is signed by the artist and has a small plaque to the side with the words ''VIMEY''. The French tankers helmet that covers the inkwell has come adrift but in my opinion will be an easy fix.

WW2 German Medical Lot.
Small group of items that belonged to a practising nurse during WW2. Included are three field dressings, Political first aid manual thats in good condition and complete, and a very nice glass wicked burner/light. The burner i have not tried to open as it might need to be immersed in warm water to loosen the glass stoppers. These items were part of a recent house clearance in Germany.
