Isle of Wight RV Officer's WBC
A rare, silver-plated, waist-belt clasp for an officer of The Isle of Wight Rifle Volunteers with a 'belt loop and catch' fastening. Woods 6.1.
Note: This appears to be a conversion from a shako plate - there is evidence of two lug fastenings (east and west).
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My understanding is the four lug fastenings on valise badges were typical prior to 1881 but superseded by the 'box' fastening from 1881 onwards.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?
