15123officer's gorget - engraved or stamped?
- Jul 5, 2002As most of you know, the officer's gorget changed before the outbreak
of war from the stamped out kind (RevWar period and beyond) to the
engraved version that came into play before 1812. Both were valid for
officers depending on when he got his commission. I am not sure when
the change was made from stamped out to engraved, does anyone on this
The officer I portray, James Crooks, received his commission May 13,
1807. I am not sure whether to get the stamped out kind or the
engraved. It depends on when that switch of style was made. Anyone
with info on this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Fear God, Honour the King.
F&I: James' Coy, Roger's Rangers.
RevWar: McDonnell's Coy, Butler's Rangers.
1812: Crooks' Coy, Lincoln Militia 1st Reg't, Flank Company.
