Title Glengarry badge, 106th Bombay Light Infantry
Nationality British Empire
Period c 1861-81

This nicely struck badge was worn by the 106th Bombay Light Infantry between 1861 and 1881. In 1881, they became the 2nd Battalion Durham Light Infantry, which continued until 1948 when it was amalgamated with the 1st battalion. Formerly, pre 1861, they were the 2nd Bombay European Regiment.

The original lugs have been carefully removed and resoldered, using silver solder, at some point in the recent past to restore the badge. It appears to have had very little use, but it is unquestionably a period example and, in my opinion, the restoration does not detract in a major way from the value of the object.

I received the sword and belt this afternoon. Always a bit of a risk buying this sort of thing online but I'm very pleased with the quality of the sword and scabbard...

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
