Couldn't say for sure on the Scottish one on the left but I think the badge on the right could only be 9th or 16th Lancers. Almost certainly 9th Lcrs, as Leigh says.

I think 9L is a cert, however the other could be A&SH, I thought the CH had a diced Glengarry?

Cameron Highlanders don't have a diced band, but the A&SH do, red and white.

Mike,
I also thought the GH had a diced band red-white with a blue-black centre dice?

Gordon highlanders had a diced band, but didn't pipers from all regiments wear glengarries without dicing?

Rgds, Thomas.

I get confused re. dicing, it seems that all of the highland and lowland regiments other than the Cameronians wore both patterns depending on when worn. You read that a regiment wore dicing, then you see photos of them without and vice versa.

More often 'without dicing' when dealing with the Service Battalions of both Highland & Lowland units.

I agree with Graham - to simplify issues to the Kitchener New Armies many Service battalions were given a standard blue glengarry regardless of the normal regimental pattern.
Badges wise I think Camerons and 9th Lancers.
