Title Silver-topped cane to Sgt Drummer I.H. Macintyre
Nationality British
Period 1912
Sold

Engraved on the 1912 hallmarked silver top is: 'SERGt. Dr. I.H.MACINTYRE // 1st (Highland) Cadet Battn. // The Royal Scots 1913'. It would appear, therefore, that this was a presentation piece. The hallmarks are London marks. The cane is malacca, somewhat worn for the bottom 15 inches through use.

The silver has bruising and signs of wear throughout, but, in particular, one side has been crushed. These cane tops were normally filled with resin, which would take a certain amount of punishment, but, in this case, obviously it was overdone! However, it is a nice example of a pre-war cadet battalion walking stick to an interesting rank.

I am just dropping your company a line to say thank you for the 2nd WW Iron Cross, that my brother has purchased off your site Thursday evening. We received it 1st class today and it is in excellent condition. Many thanks again.
