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).

HQ at Worcester. Bennett 236. Bennett states this plate was worn in blackened brass by other ranks.

3rd VB Gloucestershire Regt PBP A rare, white metal, pouch-belt plate for the 3rd volunteer battalion of The Gloucestershire Regiment with three screw fastenings (north, east and west). Brinson G81. I think the crown and/or lower arm of the cross may have been re-affixed and there may have been a fourth screw fastening at the bottom? Brinson describes this white metal badge as a pouch-belt plate, worn by officers and NCOs, but adds "strictly speaking it is more likely that this badge was uniquely worn by officers". Brinson dates this badge to c1900-1908, as the 3rd VB was raised in 1900 and converted to territorials in 1908, although he also states a King's crown version was worn c1902-08.

Worcestershire Regt Glengarry Badge A post-1881 pattern, brass, glengarry badge for The Worcestershire Regiment with two lug fastenings (east and west). Worn c1890-95. Bennett 353.
Worcestershire Regt Glengarry Badge A scarce, brass, glengarry badge for The Worcestershire Regiment with its four original lug fatenings replaced with two soldered lug fastenings (east and west). Bennett 351. Note: Bennett suggests this pattern was worn just after 1881, with the lion replacing the WR after 1890.
Worcestershire Regt Officer's Glengarry Badge A rare, silver and gilt, glengarry badge for an officer of The Worcestershire Regiment with two lug fastenings (east and west). Backing rather faded. Bennett 344. Bennett dates this item to 1883-1890.
Worcestershire Regt Post-1881 Valise Badge A scarce, cast brass, valise badge for The Worcestershire Regiment with a 'box' fitting and also four lug fastenings. Bennett 1105. Note: Bennett dates this 'valise star' to c1881-90. He states "These new [post-1881] badges were die-struck, unlike the previous patterns, which were cast." My understanding is the four lug fastenings on valise badges were typical prior to 1881 but superseded by the 'box' fastening from 1881 onwards. Perhaps this was an early post-1881 version, cast as previously?
