An 1878 pattern blue cloth home service helmet to the Welsh Regiment of dark blue melton cloth [Some minor damage to the cloth on the left side near the ear boss] complete with gilt metal cross piece, spike and rose pattern ear bosses that support a velvet backed gilt chin chain. It also has a gilt metal spine running down the rear of the helmet and a gilt metal trim around the front peak with the remaining helmet edge trimmed with a narrow band of patent leather. The interior has a leather sweatband and crimson silk lining. To the front of the helmet is a gilt eight pointed star plate, the topmost point displaced by a King's crown indicating that the helmet is a post 1902 example. Mounted on the star is a gilt laurel wreath part overlaid with the Regimental title scroll "The Welsh Regiment" in silver coloured metal. Within the laurel wreath is the garter in gilt metal and within that is the regimental emblem of the Prince of Wales feathers in silver coloured metal on a velvet background. The gilt fittings are in good condition and the gilt on the helmet plate is in very good condition. Overall, in very good condition for its age and a great item for display
