63rd Regiment of Foot shako plates
« on: November 29, 2013, 10:12:00 AM »
Last month I was talking to one of members of a club I go to,the conversation got onto the Crimean War and he told me he'd been collecting old regimental relics from this period, so I asked him if he had anything from the 63rd Regiment of foot.

Last night he came along to the meeting with his display case of Shako plate badges and buttons.

I took the following pictures with my phone camera, and was lucky enough to be given one of the Shako badges and three buttons. other than the fastings missing from all of the Shako's they were in what I would call decent condition,he said a lot of the areas are extremely rocky and dry and also there were a lot of dumps all over the battlefields.

What a super little collection.  The Grenadier Company & the Light Infantry Company Shako plates are extremely scarce.
