No visible means of attachment - surely it's not glued on? Not that I would try to nick it, of course!

Can't remember how they did it. Think Britannia and Clan nameplates were bolted on from the back of the deflector to give a neater appearance.

Of course! Threaded blind holes, naturally. When I wrote my comment it was very late at night and I was thinking the nameplate was on the boiler sheeting - silly me!
