Silver and gold bullion blazer badge, attractive with polychrome threads.
But that is the strangest depiction of St. Andrew that I have seen?

Bronzed brass cigarette box with double compartment cedar wood interior.
Glass framed lid with regimental ribbon backing mounted with an OSD collar badge. Difficult to date 1930/40?

That is a nice older blazer badge, but Wee Jimmy looks to have morphed into a Sasquatch of sorts!

This could also sit in the 02-36 thread.
Pipers belt with civilian silver plate on copper buckle mounted with a yellow brass badge (blob under plinth variety).
Inscribed on the interior Sgt Mjr T Millar 8th, 9th, 30th Bn The Black Watch (RHR). Further inscribed with other Millars and various names. Also noted is RSM A.Drummond a Sgt instructor MBE in 1942 commisioned in Lt 1944. Captain 1946.
I suspect the 30th was a training unit possibly in Edinburgh 1940s.
