Thanks for all the replies. I bought this with 19 other buttons more than 30 years ago, all tied together with a bit of wire. I paid 20c each for them here in South Africa, and even then I knew it...

Scottish Militia Button?

Hi All
Is this 'Royal Aberdeenshire' button a militia button? It is silver plated but it's mounted in a frame so I haven't taken a photo of the rear.
Thanks, cheers,
Alex

I don't know about the second Lowland Brigade badge you posted, I have never seen one with the rear as rough as that, looks home-made.

Lovely, must be a rare badge. I have seen a number of silver RIR officer badges on sale over the years but I think only one OSD and not a Jennens.

I would not be able to say for sure but just looking at the construction and rear detail, I would think the 15th Middlesex is genuine, just had the original lugs replaced with a brooch.

Hi Irv
Sorry again, :o, this must be very disappointing for you. The main thing when I first looked at the pics was the very uniform poor definition of the rear of the badges. After looking closely...

Sorry, looks like I've opened a can of worms, so it would be nice to get more opinions. Having seen the rear of the 4 badges you posted with E-W lugs, I don't really like any of them.

Hi Irv
Time to throw a spanner in the works, just my opinion though. Firstly, I have never seen an E-W lugged RMA badge and have always been happy that the N-S lugged examples are original cap...

Hi Arthur
The proportions for this are not quite 2" x 3", it's a few mm's short on each side, though that might just be shrinkage.

Yes, I should have mentioned that the hallmark is 1929. Also thought there might be an Indian connection but that's all.

Hi Herve
That is a postwar badge, I don't think there was a badge like that until the 1960's, but not sure of the date.

Which badge exactly are you after? Berets didn't really come into service in the RN until after the war. They were worn, but it was uncommon.
