Large Fusiliers Brigade /Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (RRF) Drummers Bi-Metal Grenade

Large Fusiliers Brigade /Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (RRF) Drummers Bi-Metal Grenade

What can only be described as a giant grenade produced in this enormous size for the drummer's cap. Occasionally incorrectly attributed as a cross belt badge. See the photo in the MHS bulletin No 169 (p26) (August 1992) for a picture of the corps of drums wearing this unpopular badge. Circa 14cm tall and 10.6cm wide. Two original long prongs for attachment to the fur cap, two out of three screw posts with nuts to back of the central device. A few minor spots to the gilt finish, otherwise in very good condition. Circa 1968 - 1970. It was quickly withdrawn. A copy of the article will be provided.
