21st Empress of India’s Own Lancers. A single epaulette that belonged to a captain.

POA

21st Lancers. A very good single epaulette with a captain’s bath stars, the unique royal cypher badge VRI and a Victorian button. Further details about the group of uniform items we had from this officer’s outfits can be found elsewhere on the website by entering 21st in the search box on the home page. It is in excellent, original condition although the French grey behind the cypher is a little faded. Some of squadrons in the famous Omdurman charge were commanded by captains as the regiment seemed a little short of field officers. The wearer of this item went on to be a lieutenant colonel.   mar3/4     SOLD 18th May 2022
