Tried that Ian...as far as I'm aware, they can be dated by the number of voids....but for the life of me, I cant find the info I need...

 

I'll keep trying mate.

I Have a few Ian, and all different "voids" on them...none of them have marks or date stamps on them....I bought it as a WW2 badge, and have a quite well worn WW2  Glengarry  I want to fit it to, but not if its not authentic, its going to be a gift for an ex Argyll.......:)

Hello Norrie,

Strange they have no makers markings on them, maybe they didn't stamp badges like they did in France and Germany...Don't know really, but I hope you can find out more info on them and please let us know how you get on.

Best Wishes Mate....Desert Rat/ Ian

I will do .....and for the life of me, I cannot think where I got the "void" info.....BUT, there are def lots of different "void" types...maybe re strikes or whatever...will let you know if I/we find out anything...:)

 

Btw, the Museum, which was a corker has had a full refurb, and I am seriously looking forward to seeing it in its new guise...:)

My question is why do the collar dogs and Argyll and Sutherland differ with the Sutherland Cat? sitting on it tail looking straight forward and others with the cat facing you with tail erect? Is it because 1st and second Battalions  are regulars and others are territorials? please advise. I will to fascinated to know may details please?
