Default At Curragh Camp...

Thought I'd share this find... a great little group photo taken at Curragh Camp (date not known):



Can't quite ID the unit, but great to have the men named individually.







(May be offered for sale soon).

Regards to all,

JT

Presumably research on the names will ultimately identify the regiment if no one IDs it from the badge.

That badge looks interesting.... is that an "8"? There is a device on the fusil as well.

So difficult to see, Griff. As Leigh says, unless someone nails the badge from the pics, the key will be researching the names.

Captain W. B. Davidson-Houston, 5th Battalion the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. Dated 1st January,. 1898

The London Gazette, July 5th 1901, page 4474.

* Its must be a "5" on the badge.... not an "8".

The Royal Dublin Fusiliers had that rather natty little title scroll under their grenade. It comprised gilt letters on a blue enamel ground. I will try to post a colour photo of the cap and badge over the next few days.

Yes, that's the one, John. What a beaut!

I have a pic of it on the cap somewhere.

Forum member, John Mulcahy, would love to see the photos methinks.

Here you go and yes the blue enamel is missing on this example. I did see one listed on a dealer site a while ago with the blue enamel still present but the asking price was excessive IMHO.

Thank you, that is the first one that I have ever seen where the elephant and tiger are gilt rather than white metal as stipulated in dress regulations. Some regiments had reversed metals for Militia battalions and I wonder if that is the case here. I don't think that they would have reversed the bullion grenade, but they might well have done so with the devices. Curious!

Hi Toby,

I think it's just the lighting/patina.
