From its establishment in 1859 The London Scottish wore Hodden Grey uniforms with dark blue facings until 1914. In Khaki and on Battledress they wore a a Hodden Grey square with a dark blue thistle to commemorate this. Removed from uniform, the white mesh to the reverse is synthetic which makes this a post WW2 example, most probably 1950s early 1960s.

A small neatly embroidered "Dutch Tile" Formation sign as worn by the Territorial Units of the 2nd London Division (see page facing p16 in Badges on Battle Dress (BoBD) to see a soldier of the London Scottish wearing it). Introduced in 1925 and dropped from use in 1936. See Item 90 in BoBD Vol 1. In very good condition but with a lot of old dried glue to the reverse. Scarce.
Unissued condition. Some light edge wear but bright and in good condition. Some tape glue marks to the reverse. Rare
Circa 26mm in diameter, fixed shank, maker marked Hobsons & Sons, London. In very good condition.

A good early original image of the London Scottish Rifle Volunteers in their kilts taken at Newhaven Camp in Sussex in 1904. The card is postally used and the stamp cancellation is dated 4th August 1904. The soldier identified on the front has signed himself on the reverse of the card message. C.S. Pinkerton. A Charlie Pinkerton, Acting Corporal, was killed at loos in 1915 with the 14th London Regiment ( London Scottish), but I cannot confirm this as the same man. Possibly a relation.
Postally used, looks to have been posted in 1908, their last year as a volunteer corps before becoming part of the territorial force. In wonderful condition.
Removed from uniform, a WW2 embroidered felt formation sign badge to the 15 (SCOTTISH) DIVISION. A bit scrappy around the edges and worn away at the corners, especially on the top right. In reasonable condition.
