- This is the black tin box for Sir Isaac Brock’s hat (971.275.1A) that arrived from England after his death at the Battle of Queenston Heights. The box is shaped to fit the hat. During his funeral, in 1824 and 1853, the hat was placed on the coffins. Many of the local militia men tried the hat on for size which caused considerable wear to the artefact.
