Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is the real thing! Hallmarked sterling silver, a very heavy and substantial regimental presentation bugle with engraved presentation from a General to his Regiment made by renowned instrument makers HAWKES & SON, LONDON. The engraving reads-

 

PRESENTED TO THE 1ST BATTALION, ROYAL DUBLIN FUSILEERS
BY BRIGADIER GENERAL H. NELSON D.S.O. WHO HAD THE HONOUR OF
COMMANDING IT IN GALLIPOLI, EGYPT AND FRANCE
FROM DECEMBER 22ND 1915 TO SEPTEMBER 30TH 1917.

Truly magnificent, what a pedigree, it just does not get any better!

100% solid hallmarked silver save the silver plated brass mouthpiece, a few services dings but all in all a wonderful regimental trophy, plus it still plays beautifully.

A true piece of world war one history!

It is also a wonderful piece representing the British brass musical instrument industry. Hawkes & Son would merge in 1930 with Boosey & Company, forming Boosey & Hawkes, a company still in existence today.
