3rd Bengal Light Infantry.
A Victorian badge of the 3rd Bengal Light Infantry engraved on a concave section of silver plated metal. This concave piece of metal once formed part of a now disintegrated bottle stand, probably once part of the regimental mess silver. It measures 6 x 3 inches overall and the badge itself is approximately 2.5 x 2 inches. The regiment was one of the European regiments of the Bengal Army which eventually went into the British Line after the Indian Mutiny. A quirky item of regimental memorabilia.
