    Thanks for this, When I checked just the Name and Rgt., I found nothing.
    Is there a chance to get his Medal Record to replace the Ribbon Bar?

    Next, Cpt. Hamilton, at least the holes on the Epaulettes let me think so.
    Also in question, the Jacket was made in 1973, why does he has the old Volunteer Buttons on?
    Is it I'm an Officer and do what I want thing?

    Is there a chance to find out who this was?
    Sadly it's unnamed.

    Another thing in question is this loop on the front of the Doublet.
    Was it to secure a Plaid?

    S Hamilton - K 3020 is mentioned as being a Captain in K Coy. This is a Fife company of what was the TA.

    There is a K Coy Facebook group. I'll ask on there.

    Hi USCOB,

    Sorry I have taken so long to reply. I have not been 100% lately

    Information on Denys Archibald Rowan Hamilton

    D A Rowan-Hamilton.jpg

    The L may have been a shortened version of LVO but who knows

    Interesting to note the date he was Major. In the book it says Dec 1952 but on the tunic label it is Nov 52
