Title King's Own Scots Borderers glengarry badge
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1896-1901
Price £35.00

The design of this badge derives from the centrepiece for the Home Service helmet plate of 1881 (ie after the numbered centrepieces had been replaced). The badge was modified in 1902, with a king's crown replacing the queen's, which helpfully dates this piece.

This badge (just under 7.5 x 5.5 cm approximately) is in fine condition, made of white metal with copper lugs on the back brazed to the frame. The copper lugs have small feet, as you would expect on a Victorian badge.

testimonials

Just to let you know the two propelling pencils, in the form of pistols, have just arrived in the condition you sent them. Thank you very much indeed for your excellent and prompt service, and I will keep a look out on your site for any other pencils you may have for sale in the future.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
