Title Hampshire Regiment helmet plate centre, 1881 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1881-1914

This device fitted on the standard star-shaped helmet plate of the late Victorian era. It was normally worn on the blue cloth helmet, which had a cork body trimmed with leather. These helmets were worn from 1881 to 1914 and to this day they are still on occasion worn by the regimental band of the descendant regiments.

There is verdigris on the reverse, but, this apart, the piece is in excellent condition, a typical example of the gilding metal product of this era.

Incredibly, I received your shipment today. Super fast delivery, I was expecting it on Saturday. The helmet was, as you said, 100%. The side cap is excellent also...
