Title Home Service officer's helmet chin chain hook/rosette, silver
Nationality British
Period c 1879 on
Sold

This little device secured the helmet chin chain on one side. It was from the helmet in use from 1871 to 1914, in this case for the volunteers, because it has a silver finish.

It is in nice condition, with its brass female securing piece, which would have been sewn on to the body of the helmet.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.
