militaria item Royal Engineers Home Service and Foreign Service helmet plate
- British
This is the OR's badge for both the blue cloth spiked helmet that was introduced into the British Army in 1871, as well as the white Foreign Service version, and then only underwent a change of crown in 1902 on the death of Queen Victoria, being worn with the dress uniform right up until 1914.

militaria item 14th Middlesex plate for 1871 pattern Home Service helmet
- British
This OR's example was worn on the Home Service pattern helmet from about 1880 to 1908. The unit was raised primarily from members of the legal profession as the 23rd Middlesex Rifle Volunteers in 1860, changing its number to 14th in 1880 and joining the Rifle Brigade in 1881 as one of its allotted volunteer battalions.

militaria item 17th Foot glengarry badge, OR's
- British
This is a period example of a 17th Foot (Leicestershire Regiment) - the lugs are in the classic North/South position that one would expect to find on originals. The regiment's nick name 'The Tigers' stems from their extensive service in India in the 18th and 19th centuries. For reference, this can be found as no 446 in Kipling & King.

militaria item 53rd Foot glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's re-strike)
- British
The original badges were in service 1874-1881. Mr Fox's re-strikes were produced from original dies c 1889-1902 to satisfy the demand of collectors at that time, and were quite faithful to the originals, except for the placing of the lugs at the middle, rather than North/South as on the originals.

militaria item 7th Foot, Royal Fusiliers glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's re-strike)
- British
This is the smallest type of badge for the 7th Foot - almost certainly one of Mr Fox's re-strikes. It is, as far as the obverse is concerned, good and a near contemporary example, while the reverse is slightly fuzzy. It is priced accordingly.

militaria item 16th Foot glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's restrike)
- British
This design was worn by the 16th Foot (Bedfordshire Regiment) from 1874-1881.This example is probably a near contemporary re-strike, marketed by a Mr Fox of Southsea from the original dies c 1889-1902, an indicator of this being that the lugs are set on the middle of the badge, as opposed to North/South as on the originals.

militaria item Foot Guards gorget, 1801 pattern
- British
Regarding the regiment, the Grenadiers had a very specific gorget with multiple pierce work on both wings, the Scots Guards normally had '3rd Guards' engraved on both sides at the tips, therefore, by elimination, this is almost certainly a Coldstream Guards example. The Dighton watercolours of the period appear to confirm this.

militaria item 1st Bombay Light Cavalry sabretache badge
- British Empire
These silver-coloured ornaments would have decorated a black patent leather sabretache of an officer of the Ist Bombay Light Cavalry. The 1st BLC served with great distinction at Ghuznee, in the Afghan campaign, at Mooltan, Goojerat and Central India (in the Mutiny). The badge was worn until c 1880 when sabretaches were discarded.

militaria item 1st Baluch Light Infantry officer's crossbelt pouch badge
- British Empire
This regiment was raised by Sir Charles Napier for local service in Scinde province
in 1844 and was the only Bombay unit at the siege of Delhi. It then went on to serve in Abyssinia (1866) and Afghanistan (1878-80).

militaria item Yorkshire Militia (?) officer's crossbelt pouch badge
- British
This die-struck badge is almost certainly of the York Militia (Rose of York and a blank plinth for a potential battle honour). The other possibility is Hampshire Militia, who also used the rose as a unit emblem. The badge may well be unhallmarked silver or heavy duty EPNS. As yet untested for either.
