    Queens own Cameron highlanders, nice clean strike and maybe an early example. Brass you say, the ones I have are white metal, but if early as I think, that is probably not a problem. Certainly looks good IMHO, I like his left foot which is again a sign of an early example, circa WWI but maybe earlier.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    By my reckoning Queens Own Cameroon Highlanders 1898/1961 going by the head and left hand.
