Description

A unique piece of British military history.  This is a tin map case carried by an officer on the 1867 Abyssinian (Ethiopian Expedition).  Tin is maked "EF" (Expeditionary Force) and the date 1867.  Inside the map case is a letter from a descendant of the original owner - Mark Lennox-Boyd.  Cursory research on the internet shows that a Lennox-Boyd was part of this military expedition - the piece is worthy of further research - could be very fascinating indeed.  In excellent condition for its age with only light wear and a few bumps.  Height of the map Case is 12 inches and the width is 6 inches.
