Officer's silver and gilt blue cloth helmet plate with 3 loops to reverse. According to Major R Bennett worn from 1901-23, although most regiments dispensed with the full dress uniform at the end of the great war. Very good example, but has soft solder to reverse. Looks like someone has fixed it to something for display purposes. Does not detract and is a very nice item.
