  • Bugle in C, 1811
    Contractor: Thomas Key (British, ?–1853); Silversmith: William Trayls (English, dates unknown)
    London
    Brass
    Rogers Fund, 1975 (1975.270)

    Engravings on the bell indicate that the bugle was made in the year 1811 (represented by the letter Q) by the silversmith William Trayls (initials WT). Other marks represent the sterling standard (lion passant), the London Assay Office (leopard head), and the excise duty mark (sovereign's head). Also engraved on the bell is the name Major Drummond of the 104th Regiment, who presumably was the first owner of the instrument.
