    Managed to find a match for my Highland Cyclists title, colour variation but otherwise good.

    S/P sporran badge now toned black.
    With central screw and nut fitting, 34.5mm high.
    Similar in style to the above collars but with more detail.

    White metal St. Andrew collar style device 1" high, fitted with a single tang for use in the sporran.
    Perhaps boy entrants or cadets?

    Large silver plated plaid brooch 4 1/16" diameter.
    Looks to be Sgts or bandsmans quality rather than officers.

    I have previously listed this bonnet badge as 3VBRH.
    Now have a new attribution of 3rd (Militia) Bn Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) 1881-1908.
    A fine Victorian officer's die-struck silver bonnet badge marked to the reverse with an 'S' (sterling).
    Ex TD Shaw
    Ex Hugh King
    Ex Bosleys.
    Below is a photo of this badge from the TD Shaw collection taken in the 1980s at a Crown Imperial event in Sheffield.
