It's a genuine type 3.6 by an unknown maker. The recessed slots on the rear counter plate are only found on this particular shield. The obverse design also looks fine, and is a match for the this plate, so no problems.
'I do not think we can hope for any better thing now.
We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
In memory of Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, Edward Wilson, Henry Bowers, Lawrence Oates and Edgar Evans. South Pole Expedition, 30th March 1912.
Thank you very much for the information Ned!
