Jonathan Ferguson Treeby patent chain rifle button badge


As you may know our regular YouTube and social media series What Is This Weapon? hosted by Royal Armouries Keeper of Firearms and Artillery Jonathan Ferguson, continues to go from strength to strength, attracting audiences from around the world.

In each episode Jonathan examines the rarest and most obscure guns from history, contextualising their unique historical footnotes within the wider story of firearms, their development, and employment in conflict.

What is this Weapon is marking its 100th episode with its first ever, live show. Our Keeper of Firearms and Artillery and star of the series, Jonathan Ferguson will be presenting one of our most exciting weapons to date to an audience of 400 fans onsite at our museum in Leeds. The series, which featured its inaugural weapon in March 2021 showcases obscure, rare, and outright wacky weapons from across the history of firearms development.

The pixel artwork was designed by French artist and game designer, Gaëlyk Leclerc-Keroullé. Gaëlyk, a fan of the series themselves, created the work for a web-based video game in which Jonathan Ferguson acquires cursed weapons to defeat an army of scarecrows. The artist captured Jonathan's trademark blazer/t-shirt combo, complete with curatorial gloves.

This badge features the Treeby patent chain rifle, as seen on the live show.
