A very fine and scarce die-stamped silver copper example on loops. Crowned star mounted with a circlet inscribed “ROYAL WILTSHIRE MILITIA”; Cross of St. George on the domed centre. Reverse retains both original loops.
With origins in four regiments, it was reorganised as The Wiltshire Militia 8th November 1758; redesignated Royal Wiltshire Militia 29th June 1841 at Marlborough. Under Cardwell’s reforms, on Friday 1st July 1881, it became 3rd Bn. Wiltshire Regiment.
