Title Bombay Sappers & Miners shoulder title
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1914
Sold

This would have been worn from the Edwardian era through to the 1930s, when, in all probability, as in the UK, metal shoulder titles were replaced with cloth ones. The Bombay Sappers & Miners were an elite unit, insomuch as all Indian S&M units were fighting troops first and foremost and road engineers/pioneers second.

It would appear to be struck in one piece and, although heavily patinated, is still essentially in good shape, complete with its original backing plate, also somewhat patinated.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
