Title 14th Middlesex plate for 1871 pattern Home Service helmet
Nationality British
Period c 1880-1901
Price £200.00

This OR's example was worn on the Home Service pattern helmet from about 1880 to 1908. The unit was raised primarily from members of the legal profession as the 23rd Middlesex Rifle Volunteers in 1860, changing its number to 14th in 1880 and joining the Rifle Brigade in 1881 as one of its allotted volunteer battalions.

There are three copper lugs on the reverse and the front has 95% original finish. It is a die-struck plate in blackened gilding metal.

The bayonet arrived yesterday in good order. Fits my musket perfectly. Quite pleased, and many thanks for a very satisfactory transaction.

My husband LOVED his North Africa escape map - I had it professionally framed - it's beautiful.
