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

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.

The Saber is really beautiful.

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!!!
