GB MILITARY (India Mutiny) IRELAND Cover 1876 *Banda & Kirwee* PRIZE MONEY J155b
A VERY SCARCE & HISTORICAL ITEM printed Official reply letter-sheet posted unpaid addressed to the Military Secretary at the INDIA OFFICE relating to the claim of a SOLDIER (Luke Ryan) extending back to the INDIAN MUTINY actions capturing BANDA & KIRWEE (1858)**. These actions were 18 rears prior to this item & this illustrates the controversy surrounding this Soldier's claim was long-standing. A CONTROVERSIAL HISTORICAL saga worthy of further research. Some ageing/toning (typical of these) as can be seen but overall Good-Fine for an item of this type & period. Please look at all the scans to help form your own opinion. Priced down & sold with all faults considered (WAF).
