    A Victorian Officers Scottish regimental dirk of the Queens Own Cameron Highlanders regiment.


    The ebonised carved handle has a basket weave grip with broad leaves towards the pommel.

    A large faceted cairngorm stone is inset into the main pommel as well as the pommels of the companion knife & fork.

    The black leather scabbard is profoundly embossed with Scottish thistle decorations on the white metal mounts. These mounts house the knife & fork.

    The regimental St Andrews cross insignia is attached to the top mount of the sheath.

    The sawback blade is clearly etched with “Queens Own 79th Cameron Highlanders”.

    ~ The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders ~

    On April 17, 1873 Queen Victoria presented the regiment with new colours at Parkhurst, Isle of Wight, and directed they should in future be known as the "Queen's Own". Consequently, they became the 79th Regiment, The Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders. The regiment moved to Gibraltar in 1879.

    On July 1, 1881 the 79th Foot was redesignated as 1st Battalion, Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders, the county regiment of Inverness-shire. The Camerons were the only infantry regiment to have a single regular battalion.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The dirk has a length of 17 inches (43.2 cm), 18 inches (45.7 cm) with the scabbard attached. The blade has a length of 12 inches (30.5 cm).

    The knife has a length of 7 inches (17.8 cm), the fork has a length of 6 inches (15.2 cm).

    The set weighs 715 g.

    ~ Condition ~

    All 3 cairngorm stones are intact. All mounts & carved decorations to the sides of the grip are in excellent condition. The blade remains in excellent condition with minor wear from being withdrawn from the scabbard.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
