A unique English Dated 1786 and Named 22nd Regiment of Foot Powder Horn. The 22nd Foot (Cheshire Regiment) has its roots going back to 1689 when the Duke of Norfolk raised a regiment of foot in Chester and was a reaction against the threat of the former King James II to re-take the English throne. In the same year it saw service in Ireland and there followed a long and illustrious military career for the regiment.During the American War of Independence, it saw service in America and was involved in many campaigns during that conflict. For a more detailed account of the regiment’s history, please go to HERE. The powder horn is engraved with a royal designation for King George III and the regimental numbers. To the other side is the name of the soldier William Coyle and the date 1786. Condition of the powder horn is very good – would say that the wooden nozzle and brass plug are later additions.
