    Victorian, Pre 1899, British 21st Lancers Officer’s Lance Cap / Chapka By Cater & Co London, 1st Pattern Queens Crown Silvered Plate With Late Victorian ‘VRI’ Bullion Rosette, White Swan Feathers Plume. Sn 14666:13 - 14666:13

    The 21st Lancers Regiment was originally raised in Bengal by the East India Company in 1858 as the 3rd Bengal European Light Cavalry, for service in the Indian Rebellion. As with all other "European" units of the Company, it was placed under the command of the British Crown in 1858, and formally moved into the British Army in 1862, when it was designated as a Hussar Regiment and titled the 21st Regiment of Hussars. A detachment saw service in the 1884–85 expedition to the Sudan, with the Light Camel Regiment. In 1898 the Regiment served in Sudan during the Mahdist War, as the only British Cavalry unit involved. It was there that the full Regiment charged with Lances in the classic cavalry style during the Battle of Omdurman in September 1898. Of less than 400 men involved in the charge 70 were killed or wounded and the Regiment won three Victoria Crosses. This spectacular encounter earned considerable public attention and praise for the Regiment. That same year, the Regiment was given the title 21st (Empress of India's) Lancers, taking the name from Queen Victoria who was the Empress of India. The Regiment was moved to Dublin in 1899, and served in Ireland for several years. In 1912 it was again posted to India. The 21st Lancers did not see service on the Western Front during the First World War, being the only regular Cavalry Regiment of the British Army to spend the duration of the war in India. The Regiment did however see action on the North-West Frontier during 1915–16. A single squadron made up of reservists served in France in 1916–17, attached to XIV Corps. The Regiment was retitled 21st Lancers (Empress of India's) in 1921 and shortly thereafter disbanded as part of the post-War reduction in forces, though a cadre was briefly resurrected in 1922 in order to amalgamate with the 17th Lancers, to form the 17th/21st Lancers. This is an original, Victorian Officer’s Lance Cap of the 21st Lancer’s made prior to re-naming as the 21st (Empress Of India’s) Lancer’s (see pages 27,31,166 of the book ‘Head Dress Of The British Lancer’s 1816 To The Present’ by Rowe & Carman and page 139 which illustrates a 1st pattern Officer’s 21st lancer’s plate, the same as ours). Our Lance Cap has the correct internal construction, peak and body of black patent leather and are adorned with gold purl decoration. The top and sides have Regimental blue cloth covering with correct gold lace waistband. The inside has its original leather sweatband and silk lining in excellent condition. The crown has a gold leaf tailors stamp ‘Cater & Co 56 Pall Mall London Established 1776’ below Crown VR (Victoria Regina) Royal cypher (illustrated). The rear has the correct brass ring & hook with 4 leaf mount. Bullion rope piping extends across the top of the cap & down the 4 angles. The cap has the correct late Victorian bullion rosette with stylised ‘VRI’ cypher (Victoria Regina India) applied in the late Victorian era post 1898 after renaming of the Regiment. It has Lion’s head bosses with correct velvet backed link brass chain. It has a brass plume boss with correct white Swan’s feathers plume. The cap has its original rayed plate and silvered 1st pattern badge comprising the Queen’s Crown Royal arms and banners 21st Lancers (1st pattern badges have the helmet and mantling above the Royal arms). The cap is approx UK size 6 1/2. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14666:13
