  1. I think that old soldier probably served with the London Scottish, they wore hodden grey kilts although the other Scottish regiments continued to wear their regimental tartans.
  2. Gordon Highlanders Glengarry First world war period dark blue glengarry with leather sweatband. The Gordons wore a red ,white and black dice with a red toorie. The Gordon Highlanders were a line infantry regiment of the British Army that existed for 113 years, from 1881 until 1994 when it was amalgamated with the Queen's Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons) to form the Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordons and Camerons) Their cap badge comprised of a white metal badge, with a stags head within a wreath of ivy, with a coronet and small scroll with the motto 'BYDAND' (Steadfast)
  3. Nice cap Buster, The Glengarry did not change much over the years. During the First world war and before they had a leather sweat band instead of the cloth sweat band worn up to present day. The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders cap badge changed little too, again during the First World War and before the center of the badge was more convex, later white metal badges like yours were worn up to the 1950's and 60's before being replaced with the stay bright versions. Officers could wear silver cap badges which would be hallmarked. As regards dice colours I have looked on the net before and there does not seem to be a list of them, so I will start a new thread where we can add each regiment and their dice colours for future reference.
  4. I've never had one with the blue backing felt, very nice
  5. The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders in Aden 1967, the rare soundtrack of Argylls in Aden "700 Glengarried men"

  8. Nurburgring car badges

    Yes Greg that is correct because of weight restrictions the badges would not have been used on the silver arrows. Here is a clip of Richard Seaman who won the 1938 Gran Prix at the Nurburgring. There are no badges on the car other than the makers logo. Interestingly Richard Seaman the only British racing driver to drive for Hitler in the Mercedes silver arrows. He was one of the Hitler's favourite drivers, beating his team mate Manfred von Brauchitsch whose uncle was the famous General, Walther von Brauchitsch. The Von Brauchitsch car caught fire letting Seaman win the German Gran Prix in 1938. Seaman was later killed during the 1939 Belgian Gran Prix in which he was winning, just before the outbreak of WW2. He was later buried in London where the largest wreath came from Adolf Hitler. Instead of being regarded as Britain's greatest racing driver, his story was forgotten because of his association with Adolf Hitler.

    Display is looking good Buster, yes the statue is based on Hitlers pre war uniform. Nothing wrong with replicas as long as they are sold as such. In fact the exact same statue can be found in this video of the "Nazi hoard" found in Argentina, you can see it at 00.43 in the background. Quite unbelievable that the Argentinian authorities think these items are original when they are all quite clearly fake. Argentinian police are still trying to find out how the items entered the country, some one should tell them probably via Eastern Europe
