    Edwin Alex laird was born in 1894 at Orkney Scotland. He joined the British Army as a boy soldier in 1900 and was sent to France as part of the British Expeditionary Force in 1914 and remained in Europe throughout WW1 from 1914 to 1918. He went on to serve in India & the north West frontier. In 1931 he was commissioned as Lieutenant and rose to the rank of lieutenant Colonel in 1947. This is an excellent original British Colonial Tropical Solar Topee Helmet & transit tin to Lieut-Col Laird. The Topee’s canvas cover is undamaged. It has its original red head band 'Pagri' & vented spike top mount. It is complete with felt backed brass link chin strap, sweatband and original lining. All material and stitching of the helmet are undamaged. The lining has a nice paper label with manufacturer’s name Hobson & Sons London and what appears to be size ‘7 ½’. The sweat band is impressed ‘Hobson & Sons London’ and has contemporary hand written names including ‘E.A. Laird’. The helmet is contained in its original japanned transit tin with hinged lid & carry handle. The case has a lock (key absent) and embossed latch plate ‘Manufactured By Hindu Trunk House Dehli’. The body has original stencilled lettering ‘Lieut E.A. Laird RA’. The tin is undamaged. Price for this Solar Topee to a British Officer worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 13388
