Roger Casement’s Hat And Sword

Sir Roger Casement, Patrick Wallace, director of the National Museum (where the hat and sword will now go on display) and Minister for Arts, Heritage and Gaeltacht Affairs, Jimmy Deenihan.

Britain returned Casement’s body in 1965, but the London Metropolitan Police have been hanging on to his sword and hat since 1916.

The National Archives at Kew will be keeping the so-called Black Diaries, thank you very much.
