Default Black Watch 36-52

Officer's S/P and gilt glengarry badge.
Solid S/P back star mounted with a gilt overlay, to the centre a silver St. Andrew. Reverse with makers stamp LUDLOW LONDON, two silver loops now tarnished black. Unusually good quality badge for this maker.

It is unusually nice for Ludlow. I have a few officer badges by this maker and they are not quite up to Jennens or Gaunt with regard to overall detail and quality.

Officers S/P gilt & WM glengarry badge.
This example by the same maker though not marked.
A cheaper version of the above, with open backed S/P star and plated lugs.
The same fine gilt overlay but mounted with a WM St. Andrew.

A fine and scarce officers colour belt plate post war example.
Heavily stippled gilt rectangular plate mounted with a S/P star, rich gilt overlay with burnished letters on the motto. To the centre a silver St. Andrew. Two large belt loops to the rear.

Officers S/P and gilt glengarry badge.
Fine quality badge with burnished highlights to the gilt. Die-struck star with a pronounced curve, although not marked I believe this to be Gaunt manufacture around 1950.

Thanks for showing that. You really do have some magnificent Black Watch badges. Great to see. ( I once collected them myself.)

Phil.
