I like the reference to "protective cloth: square of white cloth with two vertical red stripes stapled to front of card to protect badges".
I still have some "4 x 2" laying around somewhere in the garage.

I wonder what the sealed pattern for 4 x 2 looks like?

Well, I have two possibles for this combination, neither of which I am confident of:-

1. Has the Cameronians strap with a sphinx below which is on a single horizontal flat lug - being ident (I believe) to the early pattern South Wales Borderers collar. This badge is discussed in Churchill's, but doubts they were ever worn (as a SWB collar badge that is).

2. Has the Cameronians strap with a slightly larger sphinx with two horizontal round wire lugs. However I also have this badge listed as a sporren badge for The Gordon Highlanders.

So, they are either both wrong (and there is yet a third sphinx) or one of them is correct as per the IWM documents.

Hi Bess,
I think you are on to something with option 2. I rather like the look of the lugs on both parts of the 2 badges as they are very similar

My guess is option 2 seems more likely with the sphinx having 2 lugs. I think this may not be a Gordon Highlanders sphinx as first thought?

As far as I am aware the Q.C Gordon Highlander sporran is, please see the white metal badge picture attached below. Unless of course the Pipers of the Gordon Highlanders wore a different sporran compared to the regulars.

Just as a point of interest the Cameronians collar badges are in silver anodised. I have never seen blackened ones before ( unless painted).
Best Regards
Colin

My Cameronians collars are black painted metal unfortunately.
The silver AA collars are on my wish list . . but they tend to reside in unicorn territory.

The makers mark "Toye" makes me think of a more recent perhaps 90's issue?
That would possibly rule out a S.W.B link, I guess.
