The Gorget originated in the Middle Ages as a protection for the throat.  In time it became a  symbol of military rank. This old Mohawk of the Iroquois Confederacy is a veteran of the French/English Wars. He wears a gorget that was given to him as a symbol of his status and alliance, in this case to the English. The gorget is engraved with the Royal Cypher GR of King George II, the “Mad King”.
