A small stunning rectangular gilt plate mounted with crowned circlet inscribed ' Lancashire Rifle Volunteers ' with seeded 8 mounted to domed centre. Both fixed and detachable loops still present. Gilt bright, but some light scratching to face of gilt plate otherwise in very good condition and scarce.
The 8th Bury corps was formed in 1859 and designated to the 1st Volunteer Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers in 1883.
A fine and scarce silvered example, worn circa 1876 - 1883, with matching benchmarks to each piece. Plain ends but a highly decorative figure 10 to the centre.

There are a lot of varieties to be collected of the Norfolk Regiment's Britannia. This is my favourite as it shows an avantail of chain mail around her neck and a languid fully draped figure unlike some of the other stiffer looking and upright patterns. It also has a fuller seven sprig olive branch than most. In super condition and circa 3 cms tall with two original dark toned loops to the reverse. Worn from 1898 to 1908.

Two original loops to the reverse, a generic title which was fitted with a slightly different coloured brass 1 at time of manufacture. There were seven battalions of the Norfolk Volunteer Regiment which were consolidated to form the 1st to 4th Volunteer Battalions of the Norfolk Regiment by 1918. So far Westlake has only noted titles of this pattern to the 1st and 2nd Battalions. Both had the small brass flowers of four petals each upon which the lugs were mounted. Very elegant!

Worn from 1887 - 1908, a white metal die struck collar badge with two original dark toned loops to the reverse and what appears to be the original star shaped red felt backing cloth, this mothed and damaged (not sure what the star cut pattern indicated - pipers?). I have chosen to leave this undisturbed given its fragility. Worn facing inwards, this one with the lion facing to the left on the shield and the sword tip between the first two words as opposed to between the E and T of "ET" as found on some patterns.
