Title 100th Foot glengarry badge
Nationality British
Period c 1874-81

The 100th Foot has an ancient lineage, dating back to 1760, going through various disbandings until, in 1858, it was raised as the 100th (Prince of Wales Royal Canadian) Regiment of Foot, in 1881 becoming the 1st Battalion, The Prince of Wales Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians), which was disbanded in 1922 on the partition of Ireland.

The badge is a brass one, which has had its lugs removed, been silvered and had a pin fitting fixed to the reverse, possibly done for an officer or sergeant in period. It is possible that this is a very high quality Indian casting and not a die-struck piece.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.

Thank you, Chris. All arrived safely. Very quickly too, much quicker than from the US! Very satisfied. It is a nice sword.

Anyway, thanks again and I have marked your site for future interest.
