The part of Great-Britain I like best ...
Dear Mr Bonny - they are not bearskin caps - a cap is a small head covering. They are called busbies - pronounced buzz-bees.Is this photo from the latest campaign being undertaken by PETA - the protest against bearskin caps which are worn by the Royal Guards at Buckingham Palace?
Thank you for the clarification
This is really fascinating stuff. I spoke to a person last week and he claimed to be from the Coldstream Guards. I couldnt resist asking him about his views on the SA80 and he just laughed and confirmed all that I had heard about it
Caps, hats, shakos, tunics, its all so very interesting. I have already picked up 3 books on uniforms worn by German and British soldiers during WW2, and my appetite is thoroughly whetted for more books on this wonderful subject.
