79th Cameron Highlanders of Canada Officer Sporran - HUGGARD .

An absolutely stunning officer sporran to the 79th Cameron's of Winnipeg which was worn by multiple generations of the same family, Lovely silver plated cap badge affixed to the Gilded fittings of the sporran. Three tassels suspended from chains. The goat hair is complete and fine. Retains the waste belt but the end has been broken off. This came to be from a collector and I've written his comments below:

"Highland Regiment Sporran, 79th Cameron Badge, named Huggard inside pouch, original owner was the grandfather, don't know his initial's, next came father, Major J.C. Huggard, commanded "A" Company QOCH. During WW2, was told he used the sporran of his father, bought the items from the son who was an officer in the QOCH in the 1960's or 1970's."

The collector also has the same fellows (Huggard's) named Edward VII Basket Hilt Sword, but it is not for sale.

79th Cameron Highlanders of Canada Sporran - C Broad Arrowed

A fine pre WW1 sporran (possibly worn into WW1) to the 79th Cameron Highlanders out of Winnipeg, MB (they became the 43rd Bn during the war). The goat hair plumes are in very good condition. The patent leather top shows a big of crazing and a small scrape to the left of the badge. The Cap Badge looks ot be silver plated to me. The back of sporran is marked with a C Broad Arrow. Missing the belt.

1916 Canadian CEF Trench Cap - near MINT/UNISSUED

An impossibly rare unissued Canadian 1916 dated trench cap. This is the short brimmed wife reinforced cap which is dated 1916 and marked C Broad Arrow and maker marked Montreal. I don't believe this cap was ever worn and has never been badged. You will never find a better example than this one.

Boer War Oliver Pattern Water Bottle Carrier - RCR marked with number to Casualty

These Oliver pattern carriers are near impossible to find on their own. However this is the first one I've ever seen regimentally marked to the Royal Canadian Regiment with service number. 313 being the last three digits of 7313 Carleton Woodford ALLEN. He enlisted in 1899 having served in the QOR in Toronto. He was at Paardeberg, Driefontein, Cape Colony and Transvaal, being wounded in action at Cronje's Laager, Feb 17th 1900.

http://www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/discover/military-heritage/south-african-war-1899-1902/Pages/list.aspx?RegimentNumber=7313&

These carrier held a pint sized soda water bottle which could be replaced commercially. They were extremely unpopular and most were discarded in favour of the British Canteen in theater. Hence, they are near impossible to find today. The leather remains quite pliable. A period glass soda water bottle is readily available on eBay for a small price.
