    C. 1780 - 1815 British Sergeant's or Bugler's Sword belt. Dimensions as follows: frog 7" X 7 1/2"; belt long branch 34 1/2" X 2 1/2"; short branch 18 1/2" X 2 1/2". Doubtless used by a sergeant or bugler in a British Volunteer or Regular light infantry or rifle unit that bore the initials "RCF" in its title eg. Royal Fencibles/Fusiliers. The long branch of the black leather belt utilizes a brass tip upon which is engraved "RCF" with hunting horn device, while the short branch is furnished with a rectangular, open work buckle with two iron tines, attached to the center post with sliding adjusting loop, both of brass. Really excellent condition with just some very light crazing to the lightly tarred finish. A rare piece of British military issue equipment spanning the period from the end of the Revolution to the end of the War of 1812.
