On 1 July 1751 a Royal Warrant was issued declaring that in future Regiments were no longer to be known by their Colonel's name, but by the "Number or Rank of the Regiment".

The Regiment was sent to Dublin as part of the response to the Irish Rebellion in 1803. The Regiment saw much action during the Napoleonic wars. Under the Childers Reforms it amalgamated with the 46th (South Devonshire) Regiment of Foot to form the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry in 1881.

In the early years of the Third Reich, the German Branch of the Red Cross or Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (DRK) was the main social welfare organisation in times of hardship. In December 1939, Hitler conferred a new legal status on the Red Cross by recognising it as a national organisation with some independence from Geneva. With this new status, the German Red Cross expanded its size and remit within Germany. During WW2, the Red Cross became involved in both the home front and the International scene, tracing and monitoring prisoners of war. The DRK incorporated the omnipresent Eagle and swastika with the International Red Cross symbol in the design of their own distinctive insignia. The DRK Hewer was authorised for daily wear in February 1938. The Hewer was issued from the stores when required, no personal purchases were allowed. The Hewer was discontinued in 1940. This is an excellent original example of the DRK Man's Hewer. The white metal hilt is nickel plated & the Pommel has a flattened top. One side of the cross guard has a void oval mount. Under the oval mount the ricasso is crisply marked 'Ges Geschutzt' (Quality Assurance / copyright mark). The reverse has the DRK insignia of an Eagle with a swastika on its breast and spread wings. At the Eagle’s feet is the International symbol of the Red Cross. The grips are made from black Bakelite. One grip is finely chequered the other correctly plain. The 10 ½” fullered blade is fitted with original leather washer. The blade is 1 ½” wide with a saw tooth edge on one side that was used for removing plaster casts and preparing splints.

The black steel scabbard has nickel plated chape, throat mount and frog bar. The scabbard has no dents. The price for this unusual piece of Nazi history includes UK delivery. Sn 16741:1
