militaria item Guards officer's gorget
- British
This is a Foot Guards gorget (approx 3" across), as worn throughout the Napoleonic Wars, although in this case the form of the coat of arms (showing the electoral bonnet of the House of Hanover over the central escutcheon) indicates a firm date of 1801-16. Thereafter the bonnet was replaced by a royal crown.

militaria item Yorkshire Militia (?) officer's crossbelt pouch badge
- British
This die-struck badge is almost certainly of the York Militia (Rose of York and a blank plinth for a potential battle honour). The other possibility is Hampshire Militia, who also used the rose as a unit emblem. The badge may well be unhallmarked silver or heavy duty EPNS. As yet untested for either.
