    I think It is a sash buckle or pouch belt plate for the east kent militia the motto is for the order of the garter, Victorian era. Looks like it has been in the ground.

    Later they became the Buffs (East Kent Regiment) and used a Horse as a collar badge for a while before the "dragon" they used in more recent times.

    Cool badge and not something you see often.

    Don't think it is East Kent. Could possibly be Royal Lancaster/1st Volunteer Battalion, but no exact match as yet. Any more suggestions ?
