Title Queen's Westminster Rifle Volunteers helmet plate
Nationality British
Period c 1871-1902
Price £100.00

This was worn on the Home Service helmet, constructed from cork, and, in this case, covered with grey cloth. The crowned portcullis device in the centre is from the arms of the City of Westminster. The QWR, founded in 1860, served with great distinction all through the 20th century's wars.

This is a die-struck, gilding metal badge with most of its original blackened finish. The condition is otherwise excellent apart from one old repair under the crown, where a third lug has possibly been afixed and then removed, altering the design somewhat under the crown.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
