    Maybe the metal hooks and latch weren't used to attach gear to the breastplate, but to attach the breastplate to a vehicle of some kind. Maybe part of the kit of an armoured car crew? Some had open turrets so the gunner could use some extra protection.

    Agree with Paul.S,
    I think its a nose protector for a horse. Initially I thought it to be the plate to cover the family jewels but then saw the other welded pieces on the plate probably used for other Cavalry bits and pieces.
