13th/18th Royal Hussars (Queen Mary's Own) Beaded Belt.
Created for the 13th/18th Royal Hussars who were a cavalry regiment of the British Army.
It was formed by the amalgamation of the 13th Hussars with the 18th Royal Hussars in 1922 and after service in the Second World War, it amalgamated with the 15th/19th Hussars in 1992 to form the Light Dragoons.
In 1989, the Colonel-in-Chief was Diana, Princess of Wales.
The belt mirrors the stable belt in a horizontal design of green, white, blue, white, green in appropriate widths.
All of our 13th/18th Royal Hussars belts are hand beaded in Kenya by the Maasai, using an average of 6000 beads. We use the highest quality leather to ensure our belts are extremely long lasting and durable. This belt is 1.5 inches wide.
The old Queen Mary's Own tie is not a tie at all. It’s a Manyatta belt.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR YOUR BELT
Like a bespoke suit or pair of shoes, outstanding craftsmanship takes time. When the order is placed, the mamas in Kenya start beading your belt, utilising their cultural and ancestral skills. Once this is complete, the belt is sent to us. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
