A late Victorian Royal Dublin Fusiliers Shoulder title, from my collection, which has been engraved DUNDEE 20/10/99 and converted to a brooch.

An interesting souvenir of the 2nd Battalion's involvement in the Battle of Talana Hill.

Sepoy,

As a bit of a Talana man myself, I think that is excellent.

With thanks

This is the first time I have seen a badge used in this way. A very unusual and interesting memento of an important battle. Thank you for showing it.

Regards
Brett
