    This is Pipe Major Clark's silver glengarry badge from page no7 post 66 in my badge thread.
    I did not mention in that post it was made by William Dowler and Sons and bears a Birmingham hallmark for 1902.
    Thought it deserved a photo on it's own.

    Small bullion badge, worked in gold braid with red green and orange backing. The motto is there but no sign of the titles on the scrolls, I would guess 1920s-30s.
    Interesting in that it came from Kwa-Zulu Natal.

    After examining the above badge further I find it to be made of bronze not brass.
    According to Grierson in his records of the Scottish Volunteer Force, they only wore brown belts with bronze ornaments untill 1863 when they changed to white metal.
    I have ammended the post.
