Queen's Own Hussars
The Queen's Own Hussars was a cavalry regiment of the British Army, formed by the amalgamation of the 3rd The King's Own Hussars and the 7th Queen's Own Hussars in 1958.
The regiment was amalgamated in 1993 with the Queen's Royal Irish Hussars to form the Queen's Royal Hussars.
The regiment served in Aden and Northern Ireland and as part of the British Army of the Rhine.
The Queen's Own Hussars Maasai beaded belt is based on their stable belt and is horizontal in style, with alternating stripes of blue, gold and red.
All of our 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's Own Hussars tie is not a tie at all. It’s a Manyatta belt.
IMPORTANT - HOW TO MEASURE A BELT:
We believe in being totally honest with our customers. 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 in the UK. For this reason, please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery. Trust us - it is utterly worth the wait!
