This covers all equipment and ceremonial items used by armed forces from around the world since the 1700’s to the current day.

Some of the most popular items of equipment are those used by the special forces and secret organisations such as the S.O.E (Special Operations Executive) during WW2.

During the late Georgian and Victorian era the British armed forces excelled at the pageantry during parades and official state engagements, with officers and enlisted men dressed in fine uniforms which were enhanced by accoutrements and accessories such as Sabretache, Cuirass, Aiguillettes, Cross Belts, etc.
