Default Sharpshooters?

I guess these must be fakes?

I don’t collect collars but I’d be beyond amazed if they’re not genuine. Lovely yellow braze, nice D loops, great quality. Gaunt made I’d say.

Londoner's, big black moustaches, sturdy fellows who could be relied upon to see the job to conclusion, no particular interest in the IY, but, if I had to pick, this would be the regiment.
