    Apart from the military uniforms in the attic of my Saskatchewan home ,I found this small military kitbag containing a nice pair of 11 " bronze cymbals and accompanying Triangle (now my dinner bell). It bears initials of Robert Henry Lowe and other side is previous owners details.

      Did I miss something? Did you buy a house and all this stuff was in the attic? Cool find..

      Yes ,I moved to Saskatchewan and purchased a home built in 1920s by an ex military man. During the complete lockdown this Spring I checked the attic insulation and found a treasure trove of militaria etc. The 4 military jackets ranged in date from c1880 through 1917 with photos of the owner Mr. Henry Lowe wearing them. They are posted here. Hope you can find them!
