Regiment Bugle SOLD
Silver plated bugle (partially cleaned): OPTIMUS REGULATION MODEL DOUGLAS & CO 7 SOUTH ST. LONDON E.C.

As there was no 19th Battalion after WWI this must be pre-1919.
The 6th Battalion (Glamorgan) Welsh Regiment was a Territorial Force battalion based in Swansea.
The 19th (Service) Battalion Welsh Regiment were the Glamorgan Pioneers, based in Colwyn Bay.
In May 1916 the 6th Battalion was converted into a Pioneer Battalion as well, but did not serve in the same formations as the 19th Battalion.
The surname BREACHE does not exist in any records, but 59561 Private Arthur Breach served with the 19th Battalion The Welsh Regiment and in 1911 was living in Crythan Road, Neath, Glamorgansghire.
