    Hi,

    Can someone help me with this bugle? I believe it a British Army bugle but not sure whether this is original WW2, post war or just a replica.

    Many Thanks

    Fake, these are commonplace, made in recent times, genuine items are maker marked or war department arrow and date

    Like Jerry says... a fake. Military bugles always carry the broad arrow and usually are maker marked too.

    Cheers,

    Agreed, these originate from India/Pakistan. Genuine items as stated above, will have military marks but not regimental badges of any kind,

    This Junk has been coming out of Pakistan since the late 70's.
    A quick look on eBay will show up numerous different badged fakes.

    I have seen more Royal Artillery types like this than have ever been buglers in the RA!!!
