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.

Bayonet arrived safe and well earlier, finally got a chance to unwrap it and have a quick peek and am very pleased, thanks!
