Officer's Waistbelt Clasp

The gilt centre slots into the silver circle, inscribed with the regimental title, to fasten the belt. The gilt grenade has Queen Victoria's crown and cypher in silver, dating the clasp before 1901. This was worn on the white leather belt as well as the gold lace dress belt.
