51st Foot Officer's 1878-81 Pattern HP
A rare, silver and gilt, 1878-81 pattern helmet plate for an officer of The 51st Foot (later 1st battalion of King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry) with three lug fastenings (north, east and west).
Note: Kipling & King (volume I, p113) states the curled bugle and numeral is in silver but I am told this is an error and a gilt centre-piece is correct. This plate may have been re-gilded at some point.
