Title 43rd Cameron Highlanders of Canada button
Nationality Canadian
Period c 1914
Price £4.00

This regiment, raised in 1914 as the 43rd Infantry Battalion, also known as the Cameron Highlanders, served with great distinction on the Western Front in WW1 and one of the officers was awarded a VC in 1917. This is almost certainly an other ranks button by virtue of its construction and lack of any gilt finish.

It (2.5cm) is of two-piece construction, the face plate being in gilding metal, the reverse being brass and marked 'MOORE TAGGART & CO. GLASGOW'.

Its condition is excellent, if a little worn on the highlights.

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
