Hello Dave.

I have had another look and now I am sure Simon is correct. Having put the two obverses together it is not possible for me to be clear about EDVII or GV busts. The darker colours of the ribbon also favours Simons attribution.

I think both my attempts have been wrong – sorry for muddying the waters!

Kind regards, Malcolm.

Malcolm,

No problem. You got there in the end with a nudge from Simon!

Dave.

Malcolm,

If EVIIR the monarchs head would be facing right (as you look at it) and from what i can see the monarchs head is facing left, so I am more inclined to think the 1911 Coronation.

regards

Dave,

A lovely display to which you can now add a pair of WM Kings Crowns as collar badges.

The CC's Helmet Plate would be appear to be quite rare if you havent got it!

regards

Simon,

Thank you! I think the CC's helmet plate is probably a generic military back plate with a small Canterbury shield affixed to the centre on (perhaps) a black velvet backing. All the parts being silver plated before assembly. The chances of finding the original is probably "nil", but making up a look alike is doable.

Cheers, Dave.
