Bengal Staff Corps, officer’s 25mm button


The large sized 25mm gilt button has the backmark of  JENNENS & Co. LONDON. The button was worn from 1861, when the three Presidency staff corps were formed in the remodelled Indian Army after the demise of the Company, until 1876 when they were amalgamated into a single Indian Staff Corps. This size was worn on the tunic and the frock coat.  This example retains full gilt on the front but there marks of some corrosion to the back which woukd be improved by careful cleaning.    jun8/4
