Title Prince of Wales Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadians) other ranks helmet plate, 1881 pattern, The
Nationality British
Period c 1881-1922

This regiment was an amalgamation of the 100th (the 1st Battalion) and the 109th (the 2nd battalion) Foot. Its origins are in 1761-95 as part of the British army; in 1795, they were disbanded and, from 1853-81, served as the HEIC (Hon. East India Co.) 3rd (Bombay European) Regiment, becoming in 1861 the 109th Bombay Infantry.

This is the helmet plate for Home Service; for foreign service, a glengarry badge was worn on a white helmet. The centre plate is a magnificent gilding metal example; the rest of the plate is rather grubby by comparison, but would clean nicely, if you were so minded, with a little ammonia and soap.

Many thanks for sending the Troddels to me. I was very pleased that they were in the fine condition that you described.

The Lee Metford bayonet and scabbard arrived today. I am delighted with its condition and also with the prompt service.
