These are pieces of ww1 trench art from the kings African rifles, made of some sort of horn and simply have the inscriptions 1 KAR and 1918 on them. They may well have been used for tobacco jars or snuff mills but uncertain to be honest!!


They were initially purchased from the Whitehall theatre of war/London war museum at one of the auctions held, most likely upon its closure.
I obtained this from a house clearance of the owner.

I have obtained a collection of items and have been given some great help researching the museum and some of the items in question by the the archivist of the national Maritine museum, who purchased an item from this collection.

UNFORTUNEATLY I CANNOT FIND THE RELEVANT PAPERWORK TO THESE ITEMS.
I have been informed that the items were on display between 1983-1985.
Thank you
Sam
