WWI Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) Glengarry Cap

WWI Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) Glengarry Cap - This glengarry cap has a finely textured, black wool upper, with a 22 mm wide black reinforced ribbed border along the open end, a white metal Black Watch (Royal Highlanders) Glengarry Badge surmounting a large black rosette on the left side, topped by a red toorie, with dual black ribbons sewn together at the rear. The inside is lined in dark green cotton, stamped on the right side in red ink with the British Broad Arrow production insignia, a "7" above plus a "1" and "8" below, measuring 100 mm x 285 mm. Repair is evident along the dome seam on both the exterior and interior, light contact and wear on the badge, light soiling overall, maintaining its original period look, near extremely fine.Footnote: During World War I, the twenty-five battalions of the Black Watch fought mainly in France and Flanders, except for the 2nd Battalion, which fought in Mesopotamia and Palestine, and the 10th Battalion, which was in the Balkans. Only the 1st and 2nd Battalions were regulars. The rest were either part of the Territorial Force of the New Army. The Black Watch served with the British 51st (Highland) Division. (C:11)
