    Hi Guys

    A friend of mine sent me pics of an old wooden box he used to keep paint in....with an interesting name on it. Cant work out if its the Leinsters or Leicester regiments, and would like to canvass your esteemed opinions as to if it is Great war or ww2 (or otherwise)

    Cheers

    Hi Reg, I would tend to think it will be a footlocker for a member of the Leicestershire Regt. My reasoning being this is that there really would have been enough room to paint the full name of the Regt if it were for the Leinster's. But to paint in the full name of the Leicestershire Regt, well that would not fit.

    I would tend to think it will be WW1 in date, as the 4th Battl was converted to the RA pre WW2, if indeed it was the Leicesters.

    Cheers, Ade.
