Uniforms of the Qu'aiti Sultanate in Yemen

Post  mohamedhossam on Tue 14 Apr 2015, 10:41 am

Hello everyone! I haven't posted in a long time! I was browsing through the Flags of the World website, and one link led to another, and I found myself at the website of the former royal family of Qu'aiti Sultanate which existed in Yemen until the 1960s. Not only did this former state have armed forces, but to my delighted surprise, had a very developed set of uniforms. For your viewing pleasure:

Also, if anyone here is interested in heraldry or vexillology, and I'm sure a few of you probably are, the flag of the sultanate was designed by the College of Arms in London in 1939:
