Very nice Bob, a real stunner. I have seen a few drums over the years but never bought one, usually too expensive for me.
Whatever its just an opinion.
A very nice drum indeed! I too have always fancied a regimentally-marked drum. but the best I could afford was a rather battered WW1 French military side drum.
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
Yes, they are not cheap, but they seem to have gone up in price only about $ 100 or so since I bought this one.
That said, you can see some wacky prices sometimes on Ebay, of course, or some dealer websites.
Q & C Militaria in Cheltenham usually has a few drums for sale, at what seem to be "market" prices.
Very nice indeed!
