The sash plate was an enhanced version of the regimental badge with a large silver back plate listing the regiment's glories of past campaigns dating back to the 1600s. Officer's sash plates are usually high quality and constructed from silver.
This example shows a Victorian Crown and the battle honors include TEL-EL-KABIR of 1884 as well as South Africa 1899-1902 which was the Second Boer War. So we estimate the issue of this plate between 1903-1914.

In total the plate measures 4-inches across and is extremely decorative and comes from one of Scotland's finest regiments.
