A nice short 'stubby' example with similar whipping finish I have seen in a couple of attributed items. I generally prefer this type, but have an attributed No.9 Cdo green beret (1943) where the hackle is of the 'longer' type.

Apologies for my ignorance but what would be the difference between a 9 Commando hackle and that of the Kings African Rifle, Royal Ulster Rifles or the Cameronians?

Sean

Sean and Billy - certainly the Cameronians is very much the same - although sellers like to state 'as No.9 Cdo' or 'No.11 Cdo' - etc which is really just 'window dressing'. My comments arise from examples I have attributed to No.9 Cdo veterans and a No.11 Cdo veteran regarding similarity etc. The hackle was adopted unofficially within No.9 and No.11 Cdos and would have been acquired from suppliers to Cameronians etc - so no difference as you infer.
Mike
PS: No.11 Cdo adopted the black hackle before No.9 Cdo and were not pleased when No.9 (many of them 'Sassenach's') joined suit.
