    Silver presentation bowl dated 1821 Linlithgow Shire Yeomanry cavalry

    Can someone explain the purpose/custom of this bowl.



    The engraving: "Presented by the commissioned officers & privates of the first troop of Royal Linlithgow Shire Yeomanry Cavalry to Alexander Duncan (Esquire) their Captain as a mark of their esteem and regard for him as a officer and a gentleman 1821."

    It's about something Capt. Duncan did for the Troop. It might have been a memento upon his retirement. The guy may have been adjutant, pay master or the like. Wasn't a drinking vessel. More like a gold watch.
    Linlithgow Shire should be one word.
    Spelling and Grammar count!

    Further research has the Army List for 1825 still listing him as a captain. He was not retiring or transferring.

    It should have a hallmark on it showing when it was assayed, somewhere.
