Txchuckcook, I don't find your coat on E-bay, maybe I'm just not searching right.  Smiley
Was it from someone known by Barry Lindon  or Kliederkasse/ Spearhead Militaria? If it is, I've looked at some of his other items. If I can ask, how is the quality and service time?

The below link might help.   If your size is not currently listed, contact the seller.  He stocks many sizes.  The quality is good. The brass buttons are generic however work fine.  I have enough RCMP buttons that I can replace the generic one.  Most folks might not even recognize the difference..  It took several weeks for delivery.   After I purchased the tunic, I found and bought an issued RCMP Tunic. It was new or only worn a few times.  It fits perfect so I'll use it most of the time.

Thanks! I wasn't looking at doing an RCMP,(or NWMP)impression, but looking at some of his other military uniforms. French greatcoat for Foreign Legion. I did notice the plain brass buttons, but I bought some "Legion Etranger" buttons several years ago off e-bay I can use.

I had some free time today, so I thought I would make a few SASS business cards.   I used a friend's actual business card for the basic design.  Then changed the information to fit my SASS alias.

That's a neat bus card. It was the "Northwest Mounted Police" until 1904, when it was awarded the prefix "Royal". In the absence of an original, I think a Carte de Visite with an 19th century font would be closer to the marque.

Txchuckcook/ Sgt Klondike, appears that you have a split personality. Either a chef or a cop. Food police? You don't say if you were a good cook but you look good as a Sgt so I'd keep that persona. I'm still trying to mail off my uniform for one a bit bigger. Two different local post offices couldn't do it and by the time that I got to the big PO Saturday they were closed. Hopefully tomorrow and then I will order my insignia. Can't wait to see your sled. The bigger the wheels the easier it will move.

I've wondered what time period you're after too.  It may be too late, but I'd find a better copy of this logo if I was making business cards.  I think the uniform that you've put together looks GREAT!

I was unable to locate period correct NWMP collar and shoulder titles.   In the absence of those, I elected to do an RCMP impression.

Ed,  I'm like an onion, many layers Smiley   I'm a pretty good open fire dutch over cook.  I've owned and cooked on the chuckwagon for 20+ years.

Wonder why the local post offices couldn't or wouldn't mail the package.  Was it because the shipping address was out of the country?  My local PO didn't hesitate, they had all the correct forms on hand.   

The dog sled should be here early next week.   I'll be in cooking in Olathe, Kansas at the end of the month for their Wild West Festival.  I really would like to have the sled finished before I leave.  If not, I'll finish it as soon as I return.

Just a thought before I mail this tunic back overseas, are there any other cowpokes interested in a Red Serge impression? The tunic looks to be well made, nice stitching, buttons are not too hot though. My tunic is XL and is tight across my shoulders and tummy but was correct in the sleeves. I usually get XL long shirts which fit ok. My waist is 38 in. I would take 60.00 plus shipping if anyone is interested. Looks like what Sgt Klondike has on in his photos.

I originally considered the NWMP mountie impression.  It quickly became evident, that wasn't as realistic as I once thought.   Finding the correct NWMP collar badges, shoulder titles and tunic was damn near impossible.  I then shifted gears to a more Sergeant Preston look.   

Thanks for adding the photo.   The uniform I have now is an issued uniform with the exception of the Sam Brown rig.  The rig is a very good reproduction.

Baltimore Ed, I too wear XL in most shirts. XL is listed as 46-48" chest, which is what I measure, but I've found size 48 coats usually are tight.

My thoughts as well.  The card looks like an attempt to impersonate a current member of the rcmp.

I doubt that in the era members had a 'carte de visite' unless they were commissioned Officers.

When I was serving, we referred to collar bagdes as "collar dogs". Don't ask me why .....

Sir Charles, 

I like your Carte de Visite idea.   I searched google, the results produced many good examples.  Seems as photography studios back then often used the cards.

Started building my gun cart this week.  Working on adding wheels between the runners, two wood ammo boxes.  One box in the bed against the seat back. The other behind the seat in a cradle on the runners.  Finally the rifle rack.

Sgt. Klondike...I've enjoyed following this thread!  Thanks for sharing all this!

I noticed from you card that you are only about 1-1/2 hrs from the Berger Sharp Shooters, an NCOWS club.  You might want to check them out.  I've made it up there a handful of times, and shot with them.  Will be at their annual match at the end of this month.

Also, you might find so interest in the Grand Army of the Frontier...there is a website with info and a group in this forum.

Sir Charles,  I appreciate it!  It should be a very unique gun cart when it's finished.

Who's training the dog to pull it?

It would be good gun cart for this neck of the woods where we have nine months of winter and three months of tough sledding.

PJ,  We don't have dogs anymore.  Might use one of our reindeer, they would fit in perfectly in your area.

There is a match at Berger Sharpshooters the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month.  So there is a match tomorrow as well.  The one at the end of the month is the annual match, Joe Berger Memorial Match, and it is a hoot!  Hope you make it there soon, you will be more than welcome, and will have a "blast"!
