An old label inside reading 'I got this whale's tooth ( and another ) when I was with
the 1st West India Regiment in Barbados in 1886. Needless to say, I did not get the
whale, but sometimes saw whales spouting in the offing. Once, when on the rifle
range on the sea-coast with my men practising musketry, I took a shot at a whale
about half a mile off ! I had it mounted on a snakewood stick.' R.G.Burton
