Thank you for posting your badges, Neil. I might reach out to the Regiment and ask where they purchase the badges from and if they can tell me more about the variations.

Thank you, Mike. That brings the date the TOS may have been made closer to 1958, when the Lowland and Highland Brigade cap badges became required for the line units.

Gentlemen, I think the Highland Brigade badge makes the most sense. I was trying to look for WWII-era badges.

One thought is that the TOS was purchased prior to 1952 and never worn, or it was...

I was able to find a picture from 18 October 2009 of the 32nd wearing the TOS (See Below). So now the date the regiment adopted the TOS can be narrowed down to between 2002 and 2009.

Thank you, Alan. That helps to further narrow down the TOS to post-2001.

I was also in Kosovo around that time, but I dealt mainly with the Russians from the 13th Tactical Group in Kamenica.

Thank you, Bill
