Irish Volunteer Corps
This oval-shaped copper gilt shoulder-belt plate is an example of the type on non-regulation accessory often worn with uniform. This particular example was worn by members in the 1803 Irish Volunteer Corps. The front is engraved across the top with a scroll motif. In the scroll, engraved in block letters, is the inscription 'LOYAL MARINES'. Across the bottom is another scroll with the inscription 'VOLUNTEERS' engraved in block letters. In the centre is a fouled anchor surmounted by a crown with the date 1803. The back of the belt-plate has two hooks and two stud fasteners..
