Title Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers busby bomb
Nationality British
Period c 1881 on
Price £40.00

In 1881 the regimental numbering system was altered and two regiments (27th & 108th) were amalgamated into the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (a distinguished Northern Irish regiment). The busby bomb was introduced in 1865, but, as this badge is not numbered, it is post-1881.

This is made of gilding metal and has copper lugs on the reverse, typical of late 19th and early 20th century production techniques. The condition is excellent, but again ammonia and soap could be gainfully employed!

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.
