A white metal (perhaps silver plated?) caubeen badge for a piper of The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers with two lug fastenings (east and west) and a fixing for a hackle.
Note: This is the larger pattern at approximately 75mm x 60mm. As Gaylor plate 26.
I am told this version dates (roughly) from the late 1930s to the mid-1950s when the smaller silver-plated version was introduced.
