Gilt cruciform plume base complete with flowing black horsehair plume. Leather-backed gilt chinchains attached to gilt rosette bosses. Superb regimental front plate comprising a gilded Order of the Garter with the Latin motto "Honi Soit Qui Mal y Pense" (Shamed be he who thinks evil of it) and a German silver lion atop a crown on a red enamel background, all mounted upon a white metal Garter star.
