Literature. The 1st Norfolk Artillery Volunteers 1859–1908 was a unit of Britain’s Volunteer Force raised in the County of Norfolk in 1859 as a response to a French invasion threat. It became part of the Territorial Force in 1908 and served under various designations as field artillery in Palestine during World War I, and as heavy anti-aircraft artillery in North Africa and Italy during World War II. It disappeared in a merger in 1955.
Inscription. To the front and reverse are 2 large panels with a presentation inscription for the Great Yarmouth Rifle Volunteer Corp “Ladies Challenge Cup”. The front panel shows the winners from 1860-1864. The base is inscribed with the winners from 1865-1882 and the cover shows it was finally won by Serg. RJ Buddery in 1883.
In very good condition.
