Fusilier Brigade / Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (RRF) Bandmaster/ Bandsman / Drummers Full Dress Large Grenade Badge
A scarce, silver-plated and gilt, band badge for Fusilier /Brigade / Royal Regiment of Fusiliers with two original loops to the reverse (east -west). In fabulous condition. As K&K2027 but much larger at circa 90mm x 66mm. There was also a much larger version (140mm x 115mm) which was withdrawn after a short time.
There is an image of this larger badge on the facing colour plate to page 53 of "For England and St George - A History of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers" (2000) by Simon Dunston. Given the size of the hackle in the photograph from this book attached my money is this is the Band Majors Badge as worn on the side of the full dress fur cap. It is not as crude as the larger drummers' badges.
This badge is discussed in detail on page 7 of the thread at:

This distinction was authorised in 1830.
