Description

The 70th Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiment, Royal Artillery, was engaged in India during the Second World War, and this presentation salver, hallmarked for India's premier silversmiths, Hamilton of Calcutta, dates from this period. The inscription reads ' Lt. Col. E.F.Carne M.C.R.A. from the Officers and Men of the 70th H.A.A. Regiment R.AFebruary 1941 to June 1943'. Lt. Col. Edwin Frederick Carne, who was borne in India, and retired in 1946 taking the title Hon. Col., was a distinguished career officer who was awarded a suite of medals during his illustrious service.One citation reads "The enemy had managed to advance within rifle range of both flanks of the battery, of which this officer was in command. With great coolness and unperturbed judgement he got all his guns away, though the teams and detachments were under heavy fire at the time, and bringing them into action, again from another position he fought them with the utmost skill and courage.".This commemorative salver, which is 26 cms or 10 inches in diameter, and weighs a hefty 749 grams, is in very good condition; no damage or repairs. A lovely, quality piece of regimental silver with history that can still be used and enjoyed to-day.
