Adding more information. The badge is not a Canadian shako plate. The 29th, in Canada, was the Waterloo Battalion, but there is no such qvc plate listed in Mazeas. In the British army it was the 29th (Worcestershire) Regiment of Foot. It played a part in North American history, including action in the American War for Independence. BAD NEWS. The pattern of plate found on that helmet has been widely reproduced.
