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.

Thanks very much for the bayonet. I am very happy, I think your photos of your items are great because nothing is hidden and you can clearly see them. (Unlike some other dealers.) Everything was as you describe, I will be keeping a eye on your site for any further bayonets for my collection.
