Default 5th Royal Highlanders of Canada

Hello all,

Hope this works. Here is an officer's glengarry badge of the 5th Royal Highlanders of Canada. This type of badge worn circa 1906-20s.

This example was made by MacDougall's - London.

One of my favourites.

Will add more tomorrow if I get this to upload correctly!

Cheers,

Adam

Hi Guys,

Thanks for the comments, I am glad you enjoyed seeing the badge. More to follow...

As for the manufacturer. I may have typoed and think it is actually McDougall's (vs Mac) of London, England.

I don't know much about them, only that they were very high-end jewellers/badge manufacturers that specialized in highland regiments. There are varieties of WWI CEF badges to various battalions made by them that I have seen. They are very difficult to come by as they were quite expensive and thus, privately commissioned/purchased items.

I'd be interested to know about other badges members may have (or have seen) made by them. I'll see if I can track down any in old catalogues etc.

Cheers,

Adam

I thought I would add some photos of the reverse to show the construction and the maker's mark.

I was right...it's MacDougall's - London.

For your viewing pleasure.
