Title Royal Horse Guards OR's helmet plume, nylon
Nationality British
Period c 1960
Price £40.00

This fits the standard troopers helmet. This regiment, one of the oldest in the Household Cavalry, has guarded the monarchs of Britain ever since Charles II returned in 1660. They still guard the monarch on state occasions, along with the Life Guards, who wear the same helmet, but with a white plume.

It is in ex-stores condition, but missing the rosette to cover the top fitting, and missing the locking nut on the base.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
