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.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.

The helmet arrived the day before yesterday and I had a look at it today and everything looks perfect. You packed it up very well indeed. ... I've never seen him so thrilled with a gift!
