Cast brass cap badge with screw back. Believed to have been produced in the Middle East. This badge is brass coloured in hand but for some reason showed up more silver looking in the photos.
Nice well worn example of a desirable badge.
The full title is 'Notes on the Dress of the Seventy-First Regiment, formerly The 73rd Lord MacLeod's Regiment of Highland Foot, & presently the 1st Battalion The Highland Light Infantry' collected by Arthur Neil Edmondstone Browne. This 1st edition HB copy was published in Glasgow in 1934 and is signed by the author (dated 1935).
This is an exceptional reference for anyone interested in this regiment as it contains a myriad of useful information as well as numerous photographs and illustrations of the uniforms, headgear, insignia and accoutrements they wore. I had a look online and the only 3 copies I could find for sale were all priced at £775 or above. I have priced mine more sensibly. This copy has some rubbing and scuffing to the cover. There is also slight spotting to some of the pages. A decent copy of this very scarce reference.
The History of the Prince of Wales Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians) by Lt.-Col Frederick Whitton. Reprinted by Schull Books in 1998. Two volumes and mapcase. Limited edition, no. 70 of 200. Numerous plates and 17 maps loosely inserted into mapcase. History spans 1760 to 1922 over 2 volumes. In excellent condition.
Original photograph of a Company detachment from the 5th Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers at Windsorten Road, South Africa in 1900. Measures approximately 15cm (H) x 20 cm (W).
Some creases and a few small tears around the edges but would not be visible when properly framed. A rare and desirable photograph.
1914/15 Star trio to 19959 A.Cpl M.Harte. Michael Harte, originally of Sligo, served with the 6th Battalion at Gallipoli. He also served in the Balkans and France. He was wounded in action in 1916 (gun shot wound to his hand). He also broke his ankle on active service and later made a pension claim for this injury.
There is lots of information available in his papers (electronic copies can be supplied to the buyer). All medals named correctly with original ribbons present. A really nice casualty group to the Dubs that has clearly been worn with pride.
1854 pattern infantry officers sword with metal scabbard.
Has numerous nicks along the blade. Whether these are a result of use in the field or a spot of mess fencing is anyone's guess. Apart from this the sword is in good condition with an attractive patina. Additional photos available on request.
You must be at least 18 years old to purchase this item.
Original memorial plaque frame. Appears to be made of mahogany. Good quality but needs a bit of TLC.
Hard to find these days.
Description by author: This box set of nearly 800 pages will be of huge interest to anyone who appreciates the history of WW2 Special Forces. The 374 individual entries give a fascinating insight into the courage and fortitude of both professional and wartime soldiers who performed special deeds for the sake of others. Their engaging stories intertwine to accurately plot the evolution of the SAS, SBS (1st SAS), LRDG and of F Squadron, GHQ Liaison Regiment (Phantom). They also throw new and objective light on operations that have previously, in the main, only been described in Boys' Own terms. This Roll of Honour forms a fitting tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice during such operations.
This set is numbered 288 and was part of a limited run which has long since sold out. In excellent condition.
Two 'Statement of Pay and Allowances' for Staff Surgeon C.M.M. Miller from the Paymaster of the 103rd Royal Bombay Fusiliers. Dated May and September 1869 respectively. The 102nd and 103rd were amalgamated in 1881 to form the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. No research done on Miller. Scarce pair of documents.
Both good for age. The second document has a small section removed (perhaps he purchased something of a delicate nature?).
1st edition SB. Published in London in 1972. 42 pages of text and photographs. Long out of print. Essential reference for anyone interested in Irish awards.
Very good condition.
