Hi Gerard

Why not but this hackle seems too long to be for a TOS

Furthermor, hackles worn by the Royal Regt of Scotland seem less high than this one

Too big for Black Watch TOS hackle and too small for the BW Feather Bonnet examples.
It may be Coldstream Guards for the Bearskin but I’m not sure if the loop fitting was used for them or a blade and socket.
