I don't think the Highland or Lowland wore berets.

There isnt one for the Green Jackets Brigade nor is there one for the Light Infantry Brigade.
Both are silver plated.
If the Light Infantry Brigade one you refer to has the red.backing,then it isnt Brigade its Regiment and to Durham ACF.

Hi Phil & Tim thanks for the confirmations on those two,

Mike thanks for confirming the Light Infantry Brigade badge is actually just

Light Infantry (red backing) and that the Green Jackets Brigade never wore one.

Alex i should've known that, uncle was an ex Scottish Piper!

So that just leaves the East Anglian Brigade...anyone?

Thanks

Best regards John

Default East Anglia Bde

I have yet to see one for East Anglia and believe only the silver and gilt pattern was used. I’d also love to hear though if there is a bullion version.

Pretty sure that officers in the East Anglian Brigade / Regiment wore in the beret a small silver and gilt version of the larger cap badge.
See https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ad.php?t=91263

Photos from member Paddy as in the link above.

Looks a little large for a beret badge, could it be a blazer badge?
I read somewhere that when the Royal Anglian Regiment formed there was an insistence by the officers to use a smaller collar size star badge to avoid confusion / misidentification with the Royal Army Service Corps!
