Hi Sandy

I would say KOSB as well going by the height of the cap badge,too tall for RS (the badge that is)

Sandy,

Low thistle-shaped collar badges and a diamond-shaped cap badge = Royal Scots.

Also, the tartan is wrong for the KOSB. Leslie tartan tends to show the parallel light lines of the set.

Aye,

Tom McC

Sandy I go with Tom, to me the cap badge and the collar dogs look very much Royal Scots.

Wonder if the chap on the right in the background knew that the photograph was being taken?

I Can see where both sides sit with this one, on the one hand that Cap Badge does look a bit on the biggish side for the Royal Scots, but the Tartan and Collar Dogs do fit, I'll ask Tam at the Castle what he thinks, thanks for the help so far chaps

For what it's worth, I think the collar dogs and cap badge both point to it being Royal Scots. Also, it looks like a territorial unit, 6th, 7th, or 8th by the looks of the shoulders.

Best wishes,

Tim

Tam has got back to me with the following.....

"Definitely

Royal Scots, and Definitely pre 1908.

RoyalScots Cap badge, Collar Badges, and Volunteer RS Shoulder titles (Maybe 6thor 8th Volunteer Battalion), any dates Details on it.

Ifit is 8th I want it, that’s the Armadale Battalion!! :-)"

So there ye are men, thanks for all the help, we live and learn
