Silver. Edwardian officer’s pouch flap applied with the DYC cypher of the Derbyshire Yeomanry Cavalry, together with silver buckle, slide (these part hallmarked) and imperially crowned tip, the lion mask boss, chain and picker plates unmarked.

The Derbyshire Yeomanry was raised in 1794 and from about 1858 adopted the dress of dragoons with the adoption of the Albert pattern dragoon helmet with a white over red hanging plume, blue tunic and trousers with red facings and thin gold lace edging to collar and cuffs. This uniform went unchanged until the end of the century. The DYC provided the 8th Company, 4th Battalion Imperial Yeomanry for active service in South Africa during the Boer War 1899-1902. It subsequently saw service in Gallipoli and Macedonia during the 1914-18 War.
