Title: Argyle and Sutherland highlanders cap badge from DS130
Post by: Grant on November 03, 2015, 08:47:01 PM
Was pretty chuffed to find this as I've not found one of these badges from this iconic regiment before! The top is unfortunately bent over but I might buy a wee blow torch and try to straighten it :-)

It was good to add a badge to my wee collection for the first time in a couple of months!

...nice badge Grant. If you have a gas cooker that would do, as thin copper does not need much heat to be able to bend it  ;) ;D

Looks like a glengarry badge rather than a tos one.

That's a nice badge grant, just a thought would there be room on forum for a seperate link for military  stuff  ie badges medals and such , it would help for identification purposes , I've got a few I could add cheers tam
