    Nice.

    It should be remembered that volunteer battalions often supplied their own kit and also were a bit lax in following rules and regs so I see no problem with this being an original issue to E company, 1st Volunteer battalion of the Dorsetshire regiment.

    Very nice, Potter were well known makers of military musical instruments, bugles and drums in particular.

    Whatever its just an opinion.
