Adopted by the British and Canadians in the later half of the 19th century. The Glengarry would see widespread use by Scottish units in both the First World War and Second World War. Constructed mainly of blue woven wool, the wedge is surrounded by a 3cm knit dicing of red, white and blue. The headband made of black rayon, extends to the rear meeting and crossing to form two flowing tails at the reverse. Affixed to the rayon rosette and stamped from alloy the Seaforth Highlanders scroll reads “Cuidich’n Righ” which translates to “Aid the King”. An exceptional piece of Second World War Highlander headgear topped by the classic red toorie.
*Although this Glengarry was found without its original badge as pictured, the ghosting and lug holes suggested the Seaforth 3 lug cap badge variation to be the proper match and an original cap badge was used in this case.*
