Default Montgomeryshire Yeomanry Cavalry Officers/Or's

Afternoon all.

Have a metal helmet with a number of different holes to the front (six in all) which thought was strange (others may think differently) after removing the plate.

After some thinking thought that it maybe a way that the manufacturers/makers could save money.

Lo and behold when putting the or's plate on it fits the four narrower holes and the officers plate the wider holes.
