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

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 wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
