[BRITISH] [MILITARY] Catering Menu for the Officers in the 3rd and 4th Battalions of the West Riding Regiment

York, England: 1886. Loose_leaf. 32 x 20 cm. This menu,written by Halliwell, a local master of ceremonies and freemason, was made to accommodate and service the 3rd and 4th battalions' officers of the West Riding Regiment, formerly known as the Duke of Wellington's Regiment. The officers were lodged in the De Grey Rooms, neo-classically designed and constructed by architect George Townsend Andrews in the 1840's. The building was originally built to house the Yorkshire Hussar Regiment. The menu describes breakfast, luncheon, and dinner, with served dishes that include tea, coffee, bacon and eggs, kidneys, cakes, salad, soups, sweets, ices, and more. Menu also informs the officers of prices to pay per diem for services, and the charges the guests and live-in servants must pay for board and food. The second page lists the sums for individual drinks. Delightful acquisition for a connoisseur of English military history. Light fold marks with some toning. Folded folio. Very good. Item #1742

Price: $75.00
