Operation Herrick

Since the restoration of the Crown in 1660, there has been a thread running through the uniforms of the British Army. That thread has been there since 1655 and is still there today.

These names have come together and the oldest of them Firmin & Sons is proud to have them as part of the rich and on-going living history. This includes Firmin, Gaunt, Jennens, Pitt, Dowler, Smith and Wright.
