Title 5th/6th Rajputana Rifles crossbelt and pouch, hallmarked silver
Nationality British Empire
Period 1936
Sold

This is the most senior rifle regiment of the Indian Army and was originally raised in 1921, as part of the British Indian Army, when six previously existing regiments were amalgamated to form six battalions of the 6th Rajputana Rifles.

The belt is styled after that of the Rifle Brigade, but with a king's crown rather than a guelphic one. It is fully hallmarked throughout for Birmingham 1936 and the leather is in excellent order, just with a little wear showing at the edges here and there.
