    Napoleonic Wars period British officer's gorget

    Napoleonic Wars period British officer's gorget

    Item details

    A nice example of an officer's universal pattern gilt gorget retaining much of the original finish. The gorget is in very good condition without splits to the rim.
    Interestingly, the reverse has a hand scratched notation:
           Lt Wood
      Kings Own Infantry

    The markings are faint but readable and appear, in terms of script and age, to be old.
    N.B. Army Lists show that there was a William Leighton Wood commissioned into the 4th or King's Own Regiment of Foot on 1/1/1807. He was still serving as a Major in the regiment in 1819.

    19th Century
