Afghan 66th Foot Maiwand Unique Piece

A REALY UNUSUAL ITEM, FOUND IN A TIN OF OLD VICTORIAN PENNIES & OTHER OLD COINS.AFGHAN MEDAL SIMPLY NAMED "BOBBY 66TH" WHICH I THOUGHT WAS SOMEONES SON AT FIRST BUT ITS MOUNTED WITH A STRONG OLD MOUNT AT THE TOP AND I THINK ITS ACTUALY MEANT AS A DOG TAG FOR BOBBY THE MASCOT OF THE 66TH FOOT WHEN THEY FOUGHT AT MAIWAND, THE NAME BOBBIE ALSO APPEARS AS BOBBY AND UNLESS THERE WAS A HORSE CALLED BOBBY IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY THE SURVIVORS HAD A MEDAL DONE FOR BOOBY/IE TO WEAR ON HER DOG COLLAR. THE QUEEN ACTUALY PRESENTED BOBBIE WITH A MEDAL BUT I SUSPECT THIS WOULD HAVE GONE STRAIGHT TO THE REGIMENTAL MUSEUM ! THIS IS A TIRED OLD ONE TO WEAR.
  • The 66th were accompanied into battle by the dog Bobbie, owned by Sergeant Kelly. Bobbie survived the final stand of the Eleven and escaped to join the retreat, although wounded making her way to Kandahar. On the regiment’s return to England Bobby was presented by HM Queen Victoria at Osborne House with the Afghan War campaign medal, along with other survivors of the battle.
