DEACTIVATED INERT .55 Boys (14x99B) Mark 2 1939 Dated Practice Anti-Tank Rifle Round. Sn O 1321 - O 1321
This round was developed by a Captain H C Boys, a designer at the Royal Small Arms Factory, Enfield resulting in the .55 Boys anti-tank rifle being adopted in 1937. Although the round was adequate against light tanks in the early part of the war, the Boys was ineffective against heavier armour and was phased out in favour of the PIAT mid-war. The Boys anti-tank rifle was a bolt action rifle fed from a five-shot magazine, loaded by means of a 5 round stripper clip. The rifle was large, heavy with a bipod at the front and a separate grip below the padded butt. This is a mark 2 practice round and is headstamped K 39 PII (Kynoch 1939, Practice mark 2 armour piercing) on the brass cartridge case. The Nickel cased bullet is held by 3 stab crimps at the case mouth. The brass primer has a purple annulus for a ball round. No licence is required to possess these inert rounds in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. The price is for each round. The price includes UK delivery. O 1321

Victorian British Yorkshire Dragoons Yeomanry Cavalry Officer’s Helmet With Queen's Crown, Helmet Plate, White Horse Hair Plume, Liner & Link Chin Strap. Sn 15169 - 15169
The Queen's Own Yorkshire Dragoons was a Yeomanry Cavalry Regiment of the British Army in existence from 1794 to 1956. The Regiment was formed as Volunteer Cavalry known as the South West Yorkshire Yeomanry Cavalry in 1794 during the French Revolutionary Wars. In 1844, it changed its name to the First West Yorkshire Yeomanry Cavalry. Finally, in 1897, after the Sheffield squadron had the honour of escorting Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, at Sheffield and being represented at the Royal celebration of that year, the Regiment became known as the Queens Own Yorkshire Dragoons. The Yeomanry was not intended to serve overseas, but due to the string of defeats during Black Week in December 1899, the British Government realised they were going to need more troops than just the regular army and the Regiment provided Yeomanry Battalions to serve in the Boer Wars. The Regiment was converted to an armoured role during the Second World War. In 1956, it merged with the Yorkshire Hussars and the East Riding of Yorkshire Yeomanry to form the Queen's Own Yorkshire Yeomanry. Its lineage is continued today by A (Yorkshire Yeomanry) Squadron, the Queen's Own Yeomanry. This is an excellent Victorian Yorkshire Dragoons Yeomanry Cavalry nickel plated brass Helmet With correct white horse hair plume, Leather sweatband & Link Chin Strap.

HMS Dartmouth was a small English frigate, one of six ordered by the Council of State on 28 December 1654 and built in 1655. At the end of July 1689 HMS Dartmouth, commanded by John Leake, managed to break through the boom on the River Foyle allowing the siege of Londonderry by forces of James II to be relieved. After a lengthy career in the Royal Navy, she was wrecked in the Sound of Mull on 9 October 1690, while on a mission to persuade the MacLeans of Duart to sign Articles of Allegiance to William III and Mary II. The wrecksite was identified in 1973 by divers from Bristol. This is a group of 4 original iron 6 pounder cannon balls recovered by Royal Navy Divers from the wreck of HMS Dartmouth. These balls are the last to be available, classified as antiques, as in 1990 permission to dive the wreck site was totally annulled. The balls are each approx 3 ¼” diameter. They have even patina and are stacked for display on a purpose made wood display plinth which has a wooden triangular frame nailed to the top which allows the balls to be stacked in the type of position they would have been stored in when ready for loading into a cannon. The stand measures 7”x7”x 1 ½”. When stacked on the plinth the balls and stand together measure 8” height. One side of the stand has its original paper label with typed lettering describing the HMS Dartmouth sinking, history surrounding the event and recovery of the balls by Navy divers.
