~ Snider Carbine And Accoutrements Of Sgt. E. Miller Royal Fusiliers ~
Here we have the personal sidearm, medal and a photograph of Sgt. E. Miller of the Royal Fusiliers.
We acquired this interesting set from a descendant with some little history, the Sergeant enlisted with the Fusiliers in the 1870’s and apparently decided to keep his Snider (soldiers on garrison duty often had more leniency from the officers) which was most likely purchased out of service when they became obsolete and were replaced with the Martini Henry.
The set comes with a long service medal from the reign of Edward VII, showing the service to at the most 1910.
The picture of the Sergeant shows him as an older gentleman in a circa 1900 uniform.
