Rifle Brigade Victorian OR’s helmet plate circa 1878-90.

An excellent die-stamped brass example (never blackened) on three loops. Within a laurel wreath surmounted by a Guelphic Crown resting on a tablet inscribed “Waterloo”, a Maltese cross with lions between the arms and ball finials to the tips. The arms of the cross bear numerous honours; the wreath bears honours “Sevastopol Alma Inkerman”. Between the bottom arm of the cross and the wreath, three scrolls “Lucknow” over “Peninsula” with “Ashantee” below; across the base of the wreath, a scroll “The Prince Consort’s Own”. (KK 284)
