    Hey folks,

    Recently picked this up, trying to find out about it. Has a red toorie, dark blue crown, black bow etc. Stamped on the liner Kangol Limited - crows foot - 1945'. I've doubt in my head that it is a military piece however simply due to the Black bow on square. If anyone has any info on the associated regiment/whether this is authentic or not i'd be much obliged.

    Cheers.

    Kangol are still about today, making various types of headgear. They started making Berets etc. in 1935/36. The Glengarry is possibly that of Argyll and Sutherland highlanders. A patch of their tartan would be mounted behind their regimental badge and mounted where the the black bow is.

    Thanks for the reply. It indeed cane with an A&S badge however this was not the original one. I believe A&S had no black in the diced band. I'm leaning towards QO Camerons as it seems to match this the closest in the reference books I have.

    Liverpool Scottish wore that style of Glengarry too not surprising as they're affilated to the Camerons

    Camerons wore a plain one, but as Owen says, Liverpool Scottish (Queens Own Cameron Highlanders) wore that style.

    Just checked LS out, agree with you on that one. The style of the bow and background is still a little disconcerting. The style of the bow and background i've only come across one on a civilian glengarry.
