Original British WWI Middle Eastern Campaign Officer's Horsehair Fly Whisk

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Made from real horse hair mounted on a brown leather covered cane, this would have matched well with the Officer's Sam Browne Leather gear then in use. Fly Whisks such as these were issued for use in the Middle Eastern campaigns of WWI, specifically for the Turkish Campaign in the Dardanelles, the Mesopotamian Campaign with the Arabs led by the famous Lawrence of Arabia, and at the British Headquarters in CAIRO, Egypt.

Flies were the curse and only horses came with a built in solution. Fascinating but  probably essential equipment given circumstances. Handle measures 14 inches long, with a 22 inch horse hair whisk.
