Hello All.

Please can anyone tell me anything about this badge? Regiment etc.....? Why is there a hole in the middle?

Many Thanks

Hi Barney,

This is an o/rs helmet plate for a Blue Cloth helmet which was worn, I believe, between 1880 and 1908. There should be a loose centre plate which signifies the regiment.

Robert

PS As this has a QV crown it would only be worn up to circa 1901. The Kings Crown version was worn thereafter.

RASC?

I think that all the Line Regiments and Corps wore this pattern of helmet plate, just with a different centre plate inserted.

Spot on Robert, only the RA, RE and some TF Rifle Corps were different.
