West India Reg Buckle!!
« on: September 27, 2017, 19:07 »
Hi all
A friend of my is into buying military stuff and bought this the other day with a heap of other stuff but has never seen this type of buckle before.
He's wondering if is a breast plate and roughly what age it may be?
He has found some info on Wikipedia but not much else on the design.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Snoddy

At first thought you had a dug one.  Most likely 2nd battalion West India Regiment and not 2nd regiment. Those pins on the back look like 20th century?

I wish Dutchy.
Haven't been detecting for awhile now. Had an hour swing about 3weeks ago, just too busy with work.
Found a couple of silvers, pennies, dog tag( dog ) and heaps of rubbish.
I miss it terribly 🙁
