[QUOTE=Jeff Mc William;400856]Hi DR
Yes I agree, all officers badges to the Royal Scots after 1881 were green backed. I have never seen a post 1881 helmet plate (or forage cap badge) with a blue backing. However, a closer look at the KC Offs helmet plate does show the reversed metals in the centre ... so this is not just a "fakers folly" but surely has some significance !?

I thought the Royals Scots officers had gone to the Kilmarnock for full-dress by 1902 so I'm perplexed that there even is a kings-crown helmet plate.
