Title Royal Irish Fusiliers shoulder title, 1938 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1938

The eagle commemorates the capture of the standard of the French 8th Regiment by the 87th (a former incarnation of the Royal Irish Fusiliers) at the Battle of Barrossa in 1811.

It is a bi-metal badge, the eagle being fitted loosely to the grenade by two brass blades bent over at the back. Its condition is excellent, although there is dried metal polish on the face of the badge.

I'd just like to thank you for the SS Buckle, this has to be one of the best items I have yet and am very happy with it.
