On sale here is a Busby from the Band and Bugles of the Rifles Light Infantry which was an organisation of the British Army from 1968 until 2007 when it was intermerged into other regiments.  Because of this, these Busby's are not being made like this anymore.  The Colonel in Chief of this Regiment was HRH Princess Alexandra.  The Busby is in very good condition on the outside with only some wear visible.  The white metal cap badge in the shape of a horn is on a maroon backing and sits below the maroon and black plume which is made of horsehair, both of these are in very good condition. 

The outside is covered with fur which i am undecided on whether it is synthetic or not but i am assuming that it is not synthetic and is dyed raccoon fur which was used on busby's which preceeded this Regiment, The Kings Royal Rifle Corps.  On the inside, there is more wear such as some stitching on the sweat band at the back coming apart (which could be mended easily by a restorer).  as well as a bit of wear to the sweat band but this is not a major issue.  There are also two hooks on either side of the interior, i am not sure quite what these are for.  Overall though, it is a lovely piece which would look great in someones collection where it can be fully appreciated.  Thank you for looking!
