I've seen reference to dog's head pommels on swords but hadn't run across this version, but I'm certainly no expert on swords either.

Don

The detail does look very fine, which was one of the things that made me think it might be a good repro. The originals were, after all, made by the lowest bidder! And I suspect you're right...

Toledo is also the centre of a massive market in swords for the tourist and fantasy trade. This, to me, has the look of one of those. The blade in particular, so far as can be seen from the photos,...

I believe the originals were stamped tin, or tin-plated iron, as are the reproductions I've seen worn by War of 1812 reenactors. I have no idea whether this is an original. The workmanship appears...

The badge dates from 1940 or earlier, though the originals were embroidered and made in India. Many were hand made by Indian women and given to the jawans before they left for war. The printed...

The 4th would have been wearing the KD uniform, I believe, for most of their WWII service, as they were in North and East Africa nd Syria and didn't get to Italy until 1944, when I'd guess they were...

I saw a bunch in Kingston last week but forgot to check the prices. My best guess would be $50.00-$75.00, for the fur, as they are pretty common in the area - sold out of QM stores to make way for...

OTOH, I believe they are still wearing these and there were certainly old ones on sale in Kingston when I lived there in 1971, so there must be a good few about. Always wanted one, actually, when I...

I agree with Robb - my only caveat on the story was the link to a given unit. It certainly looks like a period piece in very fine condition indeed. Lovely find!

They did wear a lanyard, but the colours were not reflected in their cap piping. Wishful thinking, I'm afraid, on the part of whoever IDed it as FSSF. :(

Not RMC either, I don't think, but one of the militia regiments, probably fusileers or cavalry. RMC wore/wears an astrakhan wedge with a plain red bag. The cording on this is for a full dress...

Naval caps are not my filed at all but the fabric on the top and the very 'casual' way the chin strap is attached don't look quite right to me. Not sure it should have a chin starp for that water,...
