G'day.

I just got me a Glengarry of the Argyle and sutherland but i want to know if this is a WW1 Glengarry.

I know its hard to tell because ther ar no markings in the cap but its got a Leather band and its lloking well used.

But is ther here someone who can tell me more?

Hi there,

I would say definitely Great War period. The red backing to the badge is made from garter flash tape.

Anzac16,

Your Glengarry is RACD pattern 8087/1914 approved on 10-Jul-14. It replaced or was supposed to replace the Glen with Black Calfskin sweatband from 1908.

The 1908 type is actually more common than the 1914 versions.

There is an old wives tale amongst badge collectors that the bottom three thistles are wrong in having leaves covering part of the stalks and this is the sign of a repro. In my opinion this badge looks fine and maybe that old tale can be put safely to bed.

Well i am not sure about the badge.

Badges ar always hard to tell if they are from WW1 or WW2.

Maybe someone here can help us out whit that.
