6- Ghurka officers pith helmet in Early bowler style. The material is in khaki with a green canvas diamond to the left side neatly sowed to the folder pugree with a white metal/silver (?) officers grade cross-Khukri badge to the first Ghurka’s. Comes complete with leather sweatband on the inside and original paper size label stating 7 ¼ and in the kings crown a makersname of LHW. When you lift up the sweatband there is a handwritten name L.A.MUIR. Faded blue silk liner and in the centre there is a celluloid liner covering the makersmark ‘Whiteaway Laidlaw & Co. LTD. , Complete Outfitters, Hornby Road, Bombay, L.H.W.’. Complete with leather chinstrap. 4 brass eyelets are present (these are often missing). The helmet is slightly dented and has some movement in the pugree which is to be expected for such an item. Came with a canvas covered officers Khukri (see picture) which is also available for sale.
