There are two vertically placed holes on either side of the pin where a previous glengarry badge resided, mothing evident on the diced band, along with wear and soiling evident on the reinforced ribbed border, ribbons and on the inside. Better than very fine.Footnote: The 2nd King's (Liverpool) Regiment had been on the Indian subcontinent since 1877 and had fought in the Second Afghan War. The Third Burmese War punctuated the Battalion's overseas service in the 1880s. Intent on deposing Uper Burma's King Thibaw and imposing imperial rule, Britain issued an ultimatum consisting of demands that were rejected as anticipated. The invasion began in November 1885 in the form of the Burma Field Force, which progressed up the Irrawaddy River via transports, enabling the rapid capture of frontier forts and the capital Mandalay. After the capital's seizure, the Battalion provided an escort that oversaw the exile of Thibaw. A guerrilla campaign against the British followed the completion of Upper Burma's annexation on January 1, 1886, lasting for at least five years. For more than a year, the King's operated in small groups pursuing guerrillas in the Burmese jungle. Casualties numbered 12 officers and 256 men by the time the Battalion had returned to India. The Battalion garrisoned Aden for a year and left for Britain in 1892. In early 1900, the 2nd Battalion Liverpool Regiment was stationed at Gibraltar. (C:11)
