Fife Light Horse a Trooper's 1871 Pattern Helmet
A fine quality example, the white metal skull complete with all white metal fittings, side ornaments and chin chain (the leather lining part detached and perished). The ornate frontal plate shows a crowned four pointed beaded star, this is overlaid with the brass cross of St. Andrew and this in turn bears the Thane of Fife in white metal. Below the plate a white metal tri-part scroll 'Pro Aris Et Focis', on the central section in brass 'FLH'. Original leather sweat band and liner, complete with a white horse hair plume.
