Title Gilt chin chain hook/rosette, last pattern officer's shako
Nationality British

This little device was attached at the rear of the shako in order to hook up the chin chain. On the Home Service helmet, the hook was an integral part of the cloverleaf top mount.

It is in excellent condition.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.
