Can any one identify this please?

I received this on the face book page from Robert Matera-Byford.
Hi sue. I wondering if anyone in the club can give me any information on a find I had yesterday near Camrose. I have been told it could be an 18th century military badge of some description. Do you know anyone that could help with an I.D? It has the initial PLC engraved in to it. And measures 75mm x 55mm. It is silver on the front and similar to a horse brass on the back. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks. Rob.

PLC could stand for Pembrokeshire Light Cavalry. Any ideas are welcome.

Hi,
It is an 18th - 19th century horse harness mount.
I do not think it is military.
The initials are probably that of the landowner.
If you look into the local history of who owned the land where it was found etc. you might be able to identify the what the initials stand for and id the family. Looking at the mount itself, may have been a wealthy landowner. I have found a few mounts like this with initials on them, but never "silvered" like Rob's.
Regards
Steve

It comes it two parts, the front piece is solid silver. Someone else has suggested it might be 'Pembroke Logistic Corps'? The fixings on the back are different from most horse harness mounts, and match the 'shoulder buckle belt plates' on google images. Any other thoughts are welcome. Does anyone know a wealthy landowner with the initials PLC?

Thanks for your help Steve. It was found between Camrose and Withybush. Do you know if that might narrow down the engraved initials of the land owner at all? Thank you.
