    All looking good! I have an interest in the Yeomanry in Devon and Norfolk. My father as a teenager in WW1 liveved near Kings Lynn. D Sqn Norfolk Yeomanry (Sandringham) were lost in Gallipoli. They set about re-building the Squadron which they had just about done in 1918, turning boys into Mounted Infantrymen. My father was fully trained although yet to reach 18. I have his training pamphlet books/pamphlets to this day.

    Like War Horse, the tragedy in Gallipoli became a film, with David Jason.

    I have lots on the Yeomanry, it's certainly a fascinating insight into military history

    Interesting to hear about your father ....the film you mention is of course " All the Kngs Men " ...very well done and a moving film

    Hi folks

    Bit of a verbal update

    ....uniform blue all finished , happy with it ...still to do collar the shoulder chains and crossbelt etc

    ...working on cap now ...looking at the references here image.jpeg for the capbadge detail , it's white wired metal not gold as in artwork so put a backing on it and will be carefully painting the intertwined initial "NSY" below a crown with red details

    ******...if anyone has a picture of original badge worn on the staff cap please do post!! ******

    ....in the Somerset Mikitary Museum there is a North Somerset Yeomanry officers staff pattern forage cap 1956-67 with a metal badge but obviously not the period for the bust ...see pic below

    ...wonder where they got tge badge details for the film ??

    ...also been working on the peak of the cap ...coming on nicely

    ...next will be the actual crown and white middle of the cap ....oh and the piping !

    Thanks for looking in

    Happy benchtime

    Hi everyone

    Sorry just a verbal update , wasn't feeling too good yesterday so didn't get things done as much (I am moving slightly away from the film version uniform based on references on things like badge)

    Peak all finished including painting underside a darker green

    Repainted the blue on uniform , tried not to over highlight !

    Button and Imoerial sevice badge finished

    Cap badge all painted ...I put it on a darker background to show lettering better

    Next will be the cap blue together with the white band , the collar and the fine piping around the cap itself

    Then the crossbelt and the shoulder chains ...using a slight wash of " aged pewte" from Reaper ..didn't want full blown metallic

    Stay tuned !

    Happy benchtime
