Garda Siochana Large Night Helmet Plate
Garda Siochana Large Night Helmet Plate.
This style of badge was worn on the Garda four and six panel helmet. When the DMP became part of the Garda this style of badge replaced the DMP badge on the 4 panel helmet, this was in 1925. The badge measures 7cm across and has three log fixing on the back, identical in design to the day badge, it is blackened to reduce visibility of the badge. Some of the original blackened finish has worn off.
