Helmet Plates & Cross belts

A Scarce Shoulder Belt Plate for the 90Th  PERTHSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY.

Purchased from “Tradition” in 1980 and described by them as worn 1825 – 1837.

However, Parkyn shows it as plate 228 worn between 1830 – 45.

Good detail in silver work $2850

A Very Rare part Shoulder Belt Plate/ Forage cap badge for the 90th PERTHSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY.

Sold with a period accompanying notation “Shako Badge of Henry Ashmore Evatt 90th L.I.”.

The rear of the badge has all the tell-tale fittings which suggest that it is off the next pattern shoulder belt plate mentioned but not illustrated by Parkyn. However, I believe its sheer size (70mm) makes this unlikely and leans towards the centre piece of a HP.

There is a well-known photo by Fenton of seven 90th Officers in the Crimea all showing similar badges on their high front forage caps shown above
