Royal Marine Artillery ( RMA ) Other Ranks large brass grenade helmet plate, circa 1878-1905
A good die-stamped brass large flaming grenade the ball bearing laurel wreath surmounted by a scroll inscribed “ Gibraltar ”; within the wreath a strap inscribed “ Per mare per terram ”; globe in relief to centre. Fouled anchor to base of wreath. Two original dark toned loops. Worn until 1905 when the white helmet was adopted. Very large at circa 12.5cm tall and 6.5cm diameter (across the globe) and 7.4cm wide (measured across the flames). This is a manufacturer's variant to the grenade at item 55879 without a strengthening clasp to the neck of the grenade and the globe more inverted into the design. It has the double central line through the centre of the latitudes on the globe but these are closer together than found on the 55879 example. Scarce.

Royal Marine Police ( RMP ) White Metal Cap Badge
Scarce die struck white metal cap badge (NOT a brass collar badge which has been chromed) with two original long loops to reverse (some minor bending from service wear). Worn by the RM police without a crown above. Some polishing to high points otherwise in very good condition.
The Royal Marines Police, formed in 1923, provided security and maintained discipline in Naval Dockyard areas. Recruitment was direct from serving or former Royal Marines. The Royal Marines Police was disbanded in 1949 with the advent of the Admiralty Constabulary. The cap badge consisted of the usual wreathed globe of the Royal Marines, but without the crown at the top and the whole was stamped from white metal rather than having the usual gilt finish.
See RMP shoulder titles separately listed.
