Officer's Sabretache 1815-20


The 14th LD was awarded the battle honour PENINSULA on 6 April 1815 and this was put on sabretaches and shabraques soon after. The other honours for the Peninsula war were not granted until 1820. The blue ground has silver embroidery with crimson velvet cushions in the crown and the scroll. The lace around the edge is also silver.
