After the war of 1866 the Kingdom of Hannover was annexed by Prussia. Allready in 1870 hannovrian troops fought with the prussians in the franco-prussian war. In recognation of their assistace and to form an esprit de corps, some of the newly raised hannovrian troops received in 1901 the Gibraltar cufftitle, to commemorate the participance of hann. during the Peninsula war and the defence with the british of Gibraltar against the french. The title was worn by FR73, JR79 and JB10.

Superb display Eparges, thank you for sharing it with us. Well photographed, too.
Due to a lack of space, I change my mannequins regularly and I try to compose an outfit that fits a particlar event or period. This one I called 'Nach Paris!', and shows a Füsilier of the 73 hannovrian fusilier regiment in august 14, when they left Hannover 'to Paris' for a short, glorious and victorious war, their helmets and uniforms adorned with flowers....

Looks great robins2 ..........please can you tell me a bit about what has been actually framed for you please?

Framed is a miniture replica of my former regiment( Lord Starthcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) Guidon or Battle Honors Flag, we had a Regimental reunion a couple of months ago & I picked it up through a silent auction. I'm afraid the frame cost more than the item, but well worth it.
