71st Highland Light Infantry 19 mm officer’s gilt 1855-1881


71st Highland Light Infantry. 19mm officer’s gilt button with the  backmark JENNENS &Co. LONDON.  A very good example of the button worn from 1855 to 1881 when the regiment became the 1st Bn. The Highland Light Infantry (City of Glasgow Regt.) The design shows the regimental number within a light infantry bugle beneath a Victorian crown. The regiment’s 2nd Bn. was the previous 74th Foot.  This example retains virtually full original gilt finish.   jul22/4
