 hi, i have a household cavalry saddle  complete with sword loop ,rear arch supports , and double dees on  both the burs  as i think to be correct  for a 1892 pattern?and i also noticed the boards are laminated, i also have a 1902 pattern fixed tree british  army saddle with laminated boards .i would like to know when they started laminating the wood on these saddles so i could possibly date them .   i have had many aussie u p s from ww1 with solid boards of beech, that are well marked from the aif .the british up  army saddle has no marks  at all ,did the british constableury use these as well? i purchased both saddles from the uk   regards andrew
