84th of Foot Light Company Officers Regency Shako 1816 to 1822

On a coloured rosette is a round plate of gilt with the regimental device, the Union Rose in silver.  Above the Rose is the battle honour ‘Peninsula’, below the Rose is the number 84 and a laurel wreath all in silver. 

On the rosette beneath the plate is a silver scroll with the words ‘York and Lancaster’. Above the rosette are scales and a stringed bugle. The bugle, along with a green feather plume, indicate that this is a shako of an Officer of a Light Infantry Company.
