Title Lancer pompom, other ranks
Nationality British
Period c 1900
Sold

These were worn by the lancer regiments chapzkas, which, along with the base colour of the mitreboard and the plume, distinguished the regiments one from another. It was worn under the plume socket on the facing cloth of the top of the helmet.

It is a little soiled with age, but the colours are still fairly bright and it is made of wool over a cork and linen base.

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.
