Antique Royal Regiment of Artillery Locket Back Pendant

My romantic side swoons over pendants like these. The lady whose lover gifted her this locket was a lucky woman. Her husband would have left for the Great War, unsure of his return, around 1914. Upon his leaving he would have given his love this locket with a picture of him, so she would never be truly without him. This sentimental piece was known as sweetheart locket, or a wartime locket. It was a simple token of fidelity, a memento to last forever.  

This fabulous antique English silver enamel pendant was handcrafted around 1917. It features the cap badge of the Royal Regiment of Artillery, which is a motif of a ship’s wheel with a muzzle-loading gun, a red enameled crown and the Latin phrase, “UBIQUE QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT” atop blue enamel. This English military motto translates as, “Everywhere - that right and glory lead.” It also indicates sacred duty. This pendant is locket backed and lined in pink fabric. It measures 39 x 27 mm and weighs 5.1 grams. It bears the silver fineness mark, “STERLING”.

The Royal Regiment of Artillery is the artillery arm of the British Army. It’s been active since 1716 and they are commonly called, “Gunners”.
