A Royal Navy Victorian leather bound cosh.

Weighted end and a slot at the other end for where the strap would of gone through.

An item much feared by men in the 18th & 19th century as it was used by the Royal Navy to coerce men into joining up. Press gangs would roam the streets of inns & taverns looking for the slightly worse for wear. Imagine enjoying a night out and waking up, hung over , finding yourself an involuntary volunteer at sea , on board one of the Navys finest.
