Scrimshaw powder horn, 1836 (c)

The nozzle and stopper of the horn are missing. It was probably originally carved by a soldier of the 28th (North Gloucestershire) Regiment and includes a picture of a soldier holding a banner and a list of the places visited by that unit between 1815 and 1836. The number '1' has been added in front of '28th Reg' and the original carver's name has been removed, possibly to disguise its origins, suggesting that this powder horn may have been stolen.
