A nice, gilt, helmet plate for an officer of The Royal Artillery (Militia) with two lug fastenings (north and east, west lug missing) and also a 'blade' fastening to the south. As KK819/as Litchfield 31.
Note: Norman Litchfield's book on The Militia Artillery says: Officer's helmet plates also exist both in silver and in gilt with either the upper scroll blank or bearing a laurel spray and with the lower scroll inscribed with the motto 'Quo Fas Et Gloria Ducunt' (Fig. 31). These are presumed to be general patterns worn c1878-1882, those in silver probably also being worn by the Volunteer Artillery.
