Title 1st Lancashire Volunteer Battalion Home Service helmet plate
Nationality English
Period c 1881-1902
Price £195.00

This OR's helmet plate would have been worn on the cork bodied blue cloth helmet, with white metal fittings, spike and chin chain, that was adopted by the British Army in 1871 under the influence of the Prussian victory over France in 1871.

This is a two-piece die-struck plate made of white metal and measures nearly 13cm high by just over 10.5cm wide. It is in excellent condition for its age, with no apparent damage splits, dings, etc.
