Default 3rd Regt, Duke of Lancaster's Own Helmet Plate

Hello, all!!

This new acquisition arrived in the mail recently, an officer's home service helmet plate to the 3rd Regiment Duke of Lancaster's Own for your comment and consideration.

The 3rd Regiment, Duke of Lancaster’s Own was formally embodied for service on 25 February 1798, and was placed on a permanent footing as the 3rd Royal Lancashire Militia in 1800. The 3rd Royal Lancashire Militia was linked with the 47th (Lancashire) and 81st (Loyal Lincoln Volunteers) Regiments of Foot in Sub-District No 12 (Lancashire), with the depot established at Fulwood Barracks in Preston. The Childers Reforms completed the process by incorporating the militia battalions into the expanded county regiments. On 1 July 1881 the 47th and 81st Foot became the 1st and 2nd Battalions of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment with the 3rd Royal Lancashire Militia (The Duke of Lancaster's Own) as its 3rd Battalion.

This officer’s helmet plate is silver plate with a rich gilt regimental title circlet inscribed “3rd Regt Duke of Lancaster’s Own” surrounding a beautifully enameled red Lancashire rose set on a black velvet background as worn from approximately 1878 to 1881 when the regiment became the 3rd Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment and adopted a new helmet plate more aligned with regular battalion regimental pattern.
