65th of Foot Officers Shako 1861 to 1869




A brass 8 pointed star with the topmost point being displaced by a crown.  In the centre of the star is the Garter with the motto ‘Honi soit qui mal y pense’. In the centre of the Garter is the number 65 in stencilled figures.
(It is worth noting that the ‘Tuft Cup’ on this example has been placed upside down on the Shako)!
