Smile Early F Narborough marked Duty Plate

Hi all,

Have seen a thread on F. Narborough of Birmingham with the mark registered in 1898. Here is a late Victorian period duty plate for 42 Private Harper, A Company, Gordon Highlanders with a Victorian crowned regimental badge. Collected by an Australian soldier on the Western Front and brought home in his kit bag with a German helmet and some badges.

Cheers Dean.
