An excellent condition London made fife from ebony wood, complete with its leather carry case.
Case with WD marking, maker and date 1915. Utilitarian un-lined case as one might expect for a military instrument of this vintage. Fastening strap in good usable condition, but with age/use cracking (see images).
Instrument is in excellent damage free condition, but in terms of its musicality could probably do with ‘servicing’.
Nickel collar bands with WD broad arrows (see images). With good clean London maker details too both halves of the instrument.
A good untouched item.
Used predominately by Scottish bands.
