Capt. Christopher B Birdwood, Probyn’s Horse: a small leather case


The case measures 18.75 x 7.75 ins and is 10.75 inches deep. It is boldly named below the lock [which opens and closes properly but has no key]. The leather along the hinge is cracked and broken but the hinge works perfectly well on the material beneath. The interior has a thin division but we are not sure of the case’s precise use. The Hon Christopher Birdwood served in the same regiment as his father, Probyn’s Horse, 11th Bengal Lancers and was at one time his adc. He later succeeded as the 2nd Baron Birdwood. This was sold with other items from the family’s country house in Worcestershire after the death of the 3rd Baron some years ago.
