    I believe they are EG/RLPL Mackays.

    I believe Mackays have a straight cap, no? In any case, they're EGs on the 888.

    We'll call it a RLPL EG bastard child until we figure out what it is [​IMG] It's not the malvern.

    You're right, gotta figure out what model it is.

    soaped,

    did you score those off the 'bay? I saw them on there last week. I was cursing the fact they were 1/2 size too big. Nice pick up. Please find out the model name, so I can keep an eye out in the future.

    It's most like a Malvern, but with a different medallion. Not sure what the RLPL name for it would have been.

    perhaps the Barend? although I think the Barend model has a double sole. Not sure if these do. Soaped, can you look at the shoe box and put an end to this idle speculation? [​IMG]

    I left the shoe box out and somebody thought it was trash. Needless to say it is now somewhere but not here [​IMG]

    5. Malverne
    6. Double monk: Westminster

    10. Don't know, same as #2 but in calf

    Edward Green used to make the boots for the Household Cavalry, but not any more:

    [​IMG]

    In that picture, taken at the old EG factory (now John Lobb), you'll find a pair hanging from the shelves.
    "˜Old England' also exhibits a sample of the Household Cavalry boots.

    [​IMG]

    I believe the boots displayed on the table are also of historical interest only.

    Sorry, far too much work early in the morning!
