Title 108th (Madras Infantry) Regiment of Foot glengarry badge
Nationality British
Period c 1874-81
Sold

This is an old East India Co. regiment, which started life in 1854 and progressed through several changes of title from the 3rd Madras Infantry to the 108th, becoming the 2nd Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers in 1881. As with most of these old EIC regiments, the bulk of the other ranks were Irishmen.

This is a die-struck brass badge, with one original brass lug and one copper replacement one. The condition is excellent for its age with relatively little wear and tear.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
