    HCB cast white metal pouch/baldric badge 1909-19.
    Badge closely follows design of predecessor units ie 5VBRH & Perthshire Highland Volunteers.
    This example with four short screws and nuts. It came together with the small cast wm crowned thistle shown below.
    Both pieces are highly polished in the central areas. I believe this combination of badges were worn on the pipers baldric rather than the pouch.

    Brass cast numerals conjoined at the base for wear on the kilmarnock. 1870s
    Measures 2.1/32" x 1.5/8" x 3/32".
    The metal seems to have suffered water damage at some time.

    A most unusual Victorian officers glengarry badge by Kirkwoods of Edinburgh 1881-1902.
    Silver plate and gilt with finely detailed lettering, the reverse fitted with belt loop and fastener. There is no evidence to suggest lugs were ever fitted. The Sphinx has its own cotter pin fixing lug. Because of the thin space under the belt loop it would only fit a ladies elasticated belt, add to that the fact that the bottom point of the star has been removed I would suggest worn by an officers wife at regimental dances.
