Bennett dates this pattern to c1880, just before the 29th Foot became the 1st battalion of The Worcestershire Regiment in the Cardwell reforms of 1881 (glengarry badges then ceased to carry the regimental number). All of this suggests this was a short-lived badge.

HQ at Bodmin. Ivall & Thomas 285. Note: This badge is incorrectly ascribed to the Somerset Light Infantry in early versions of Kipling & King but this was corrected in later editions (reference 606). Ivall & Thomas describe this item as a field service cap badge for the 2nd VB and estimate it was worn c1895-1908.

HQ at Grantham. Note: This plate is unusual in that it shows a 'strap' to the centre rather than the standard circlet. Perhaps this is a conversion from an earlier rifle volunteer helmet plate?

Note: This badge was also worn by The Trinity College, Glenalmond, Officer Training Corps, although the quality of the striking and the dark, toned lugs suggests this may be an earlier (Victorian) example.

I have never seen this combination before on one of these badges. This is likely a modification but it is hard to say whether this was done at the time of wear or later.

Bloomer, book 1 page 35, shows a version of this badge and describes it as an officer\'s (hallmarked silver) glengarry badge. Note: Curiously, the bugle faces the opposite way to usual. Colin Churchill, in his book on the History of the British Army Infantry Collar Badge, describes this as an officer\'s puggaree badge (reference 716), stating it is much larger and of a different format to the officer\'s service dress collar badge. This badge does seem to be too large to have been worn as a collar?

Churchill says this collar badge was introduced in 1899 and changed to gilding metal in 1908 when the unit became the 5th (Cinque Ports) battalion of The Royal Sussex Regiment. He adds: \"Even after 1908, the white metal badge was still being worn in full dress as a reminder of the volunteer tradition.\"

Churchill 738/739. Note: Churchill shows these collars (worn horizontally, with the flags not facing) and states: "with metal grenades substituted for embroidery, for wear on the scarlet frock".

It describes a black velvet centre, although I am informed this plate\'s red centre was a variation made of Moroccan leather. I understand the difference in backings date back to the Canadian and Indian traditions of the regiment.

Note: One side has a benchmark (11) but there appears to be no benchmark on the other side, which suggests this may be a later 'marriage' of pieces.

The reverse is marked for Hobson & Sons, Lexington St, London. As KK224. Note: This looks to be a conversion from a Victorian plate - often carried out around 1902, as officer\'s were required to buy their own helmet plates. The combination of the converted crown and blank scroll sphinx is intriguing - the territorial battalions came into force in 1908 and were not entitled to use the Egypt battle honour. Perhaps this was an earlier militia officer\'s helmet plate or perhaps the centre is also a later addition?
Lincs Regt OSD Cap Badge A cast, officer\'s service dress, bronzed cap badge for The Lincolnshire Regiment with two blade fastenings (east and west). As KK1957.
Lincs RV Officer\'s Shako Plate A rare, silvered, shako plate for an officer of The 1st Lincolnshire Rifle Volunteers with two lug fastenings (east and west). Note: I believe this pattern was also used by other rifle volunteer units.

Note: Colin Churchill, in his book on the History of the British Army Infantry Collar Badge, is unsure on the use of these collars. He notes it has been suggested these are 'walking out' collar badges but feels this is unlikely. Similarly, he accepts they could have been worn by warrant officers and senior non-commissioned officers but feels this is unlikely.

As Litchfield 39. Note: There is limited gilt remaining on the front of the plate (price adjusted, accordingly) although the remains of gilding are clear on the back. The added wheel is also typical of an officer\'s plate. Norman Litchfield\'s book on The Militia Artillery 1852-1909 shows a similar helmet plate for The Scottish Division (Militia) dated to 1882-89. The book states the blue cloth helmet plate was authorised for wear by artillery officers after 1880. I believe this was a short-lived helmet plate worn just prior to the militia artillery reorganisation of 1882 (when the South East of Scotland Artillery became part of the Scottish Division).

Martin Esq, 'The Universal Helmet Plate 1878-1914', it states that the helmet plate centre (Fig. 411), 'was formerly worn as a collar badge'". Churchill adds: "No documentary or photographic evidence has been located that confirms this statement." That said, in the late Victorian period it was common for British infantry regiments to wear the badge used as the centre of the helmet plate as an early cap badge (in brass) and for the volunteers to mirror this badge in white metal.
SLI Cap Badge A nice white metal cap badge for The Somerset Light Infantry with two lug fastenings (north and south), which suggest it to be a Victorian/Edwardian example. KK607.

SLI OSD Cap Badge An officer\'s service dress cap badge for The Somerset Light Infantry with two blade fastenings (north and south). As KK1981. Note: This is the same size as the other rank\'s beret badge, although I believe SLI officers wore this size badge prior to the introduction of the beret.
