RE: 1812 100th Regiment Belt Plates for Grenadiers
- Hi William, I have also seen this done with the Grenadiers of the 49th Reg't. It was a portrait of one of the Officers of the Company.
It was good to meet you last weekend!

Subject: 1812 100th Regiment Belt Plates for Grenadiers
I have seen various examples of enlisted belt plates for the 100th and they have all been the same version a crown above the number 100. Today, I was surprised by an email from someone who also has an interest in the 100th.
He sent me a picture that shows a belt plate very similar in shape and with the same style 100 marking with the difference being that it has a stylized grenade over the number 100. It is in the Fort Niagara Museum and is said to have been used by the grenadier company.
Does anyone know about this being done for the grenadiers of the 100th or any other regiments and if it was, would the light company have plates with a bugle?
