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

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.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.

The helmet arrived the day before yesterday and I had a look at it today and everything looks perfect. You packed it up very well indeed. ... I've never seen him so thrilled with a gift!
