Hi BC,

A wonderful group and some very seldom seen pieces, well done.

I have a glengarry badge in my album but lovely to see all these pieces.

Cheers, Roy.

thanks roy
ive seen your glengarry. i enjoy looking at your albums.
i will add my hat badges later however its the same as the badge on the belt buckle and cantle.
all uncommon items but i had never seen or even heard of the quaiche before. doing a google search on it i understand what it was used for and love having it with the badge on it.
cheers
bc

HI BC,

Yes that's a lovely quaiche, in fact I feel a tipple of my favorite single malt coming on....

Cheers, Roy.

Yes my wife suddenly noticed all the bottles of various single malts on my top shelf and asked "is this what you need to get through this marriage"....

Nothing like putting that vintage find to work BC..I'm doing the same with my BSA rifle tomorrow!

Cheers, Roy.

i noticed this sporran sell on ebay the other day.
as nice as it is, the cantle is not the same as the one at the start of this thread.
this one looks to be a standard cantle with badge applied. the one at the start of this post has the cantle shaped to fit the badge perfectly.
big price and i know which one i would prefer

Hi BC

Hey I don't think Ive seen this thread previously, man they are all nice, a great collection. Where was the recent sporran sale and what did it go for ??

Taking it easy today, Anzac Day was a real strain seeing it was all over in 5 minutes.

Keep safe

Regards

Phil.
