Hi,
Just kitted up with the help of the regimental museum for accuracy, are you still looking for kit? I have several good sources that produce decent stuff.

The yeomanry cavalry units had some variations from regular cavalry regarding horse tack btw the UP saddle wasn't used for one rather a more 'normal' looking saddle plus the horseshoe case is a little different to the norm.
I have several photos of my regiment from the period that illustrate..

made a note in my diary on the way here it simply said 'b**ger'

I was just thinking 'hey, those guys have taken their caps off and are balancing them on the saddles some how, how are they doing that...?' then i noticed the horses in question had 6 legs...

We find ourselves stepping up a gear for 2013 and I'm keen to introduce the machine gun section for those less keen on actually riding, so we're always looking for potential Essex Yeomen. our web presence is http://www.yeomangreatwar.com to those interested.
If it's a cavalry machine gun section i've got a load of original Hotchkiss ammunition boxes
We are a circus Squadron, we are old '22'
And binge and rev and joyride is all we're fit to do!

Interested in those! I have a large toy for the HMGC and TC to play with...... they would go rather nicely.
