Is there anyone who can make me an officer's swordbelt and the crossbelt?

If it is possible, how much would it cost and how long would it take?

Depends on how much you want to invest. Check out 'Military Metalwork' - they seem to have some nice belts. No idea how long they'd take.

With the pouch, I'm sure someone is producing those crappy Victorian style, Indian machine stitched job. No idea who. I make a copy of an officer's pouch that exists in the RGJs Winchester museum (see pix of original on general forum http://2nd95thrifles.myfastforum.org/about981.html) probably around the 200 mark and as close to an original as you'll get. No idea how long it would take at moment.

Mind you, I think Blakey has one he doesn't need q21

200? I take the buyer supplies his own lionhead, whistle and chain for that?!
Paul Durrant

Absolutely!

Well the 200.00 mark is agreeable, but is it possible to be ready for the 17th of February or is that not enough time ....

if it isn't I may be able to get Blakey to let me borrow his while mine is being made ....

any idea how I can get in touch with Blakey?
Ben Townsend

He posts here as 'The sarge'.
For a sword belt, you could do worse than this bloke. He keeps stock, and the price is good if you can work around import duty.
