Title Dublin National Volunteers cap badge
Nationality British
Period 1915
Sold

This is the badge John Redmond had made to encourage the volunteers in the Dublin area to enlist in the British army. Subsequently, the IRA utilised this badge, normally knocking out the 'NV' (National Volunteers) motif. It has the Dublin coat of arms above a wreath of shamrocks.

The finish on this example is really quite good considering the rough usage to which many of them were put over the years.

As 20th-century Irish badges go, this is a relatively rare one.

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.

My Arisaka arrived at 9.00am. Very prompt delivery and excellent packaging! The blade is superb.. and just what I was after, its in very fine condition and just as you described.. I've referenced it in my copy of Raymond La Bar's book "Bayonets of Japan".

Many thanks, Chris, once again its been a pleasure doing business!
