    Victorian warrant officers plaid brooch of 94mm diameter.
    Finely cast brooch of superior quality in nickel silver with crisp lettering on the motto. A blank scroll on the sphinx only example I have seen a VB perhaps?
    Burnished outer rim, stout pin and hasp to the rear.

    A well worn and repaired officers glengarry badge 1902-36.
    Sphinx has been re-affixed with a blob of silver solder, points of the star bent backwards, lugs resoldered, heavy polish wear.
    Top left hand scroll has file marks to replace the worn off lettering.
