Title Connaught Rangers KC cap badge, 1896 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1914

The Connaught Rangers served with great distinction as the 88th Foot in the Peninsula War in Spain and Portugal and are, arguably, next to the Dublin Fusiliers, one of the more distinguished of the old pre-partition Irish regiments.

This is a die-struck example in gilding metal with a replacement pin at the reverse (the slider having broken, presumably). Increasingly, a hard badge to find in perfect condition, hence its inclusion here.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.

Thank you for the bayonet... I am absolutely thrilled with it. Look forward to more purchases from you.
