The Plumery manufactures the entire range of the British Armies plumes in humanely gathered horse hair and feather, along with the Lance Cap and supporting metalwork. We can also repair heavy cavalry helmets, modern or period.
We supply many of the world's armies with plumes from Ghana to Australia and can supply other items at competitive prices. There are still currently around sixty different patterns of plume worn by the British Army.
Three thousand solders wear the four inch white feather hackle, and even the single Household Cavalry Veterinary Officer has his own distinct plume, a humanely gathered red swan feather variant.
There are probably ten thousand British solders issued with plumes. This means we have to be flexible within the range and quantities required by the various units and single customers. We are also consultants in plume manufacturing for Hobson & Sons Ltd and Firmin & Sons PLC.
