Remembered Today:

What badge


Black Watch

Recommended Posts

I saw a badge for sale, identical to Black Watch, but without the words Black Watch or Royal Highlanders. The only lettering on the badge is the usual "nemo me impune lacessit"

any ideas?

It could be the post 1937 Black Watch badge, which is the same as the earlier type, but with out the two scrolls. This was because the regiments offical title was changed from 'Royal Highlanders' to 'Royal Highland Regiment'. The badge without scrolls appears with Kings crown, or queens crown. The Officer's and senior NCO's badge was the same design but in Bi metal.

Stewart

Stewart,

I beleive you are right, The difference between TF and Regular badges is the absence of the Sphinx on the TF badges at the time of the Great War. I think it is post1937. Perhaps Neil can say what crown is on it

It is of course the inter war-1950s pattern badge worn after the regt changed the precedence of its title. The badge came in both k/c and q/c.
