A massive volume containing 381 pages, filled with maps, diagrams, and photos of the 15th Scottish Division during WW2. The Dust Jacket present but poor condition Main Book itself is in good condition, some slight marks to interior and pages no foxing, some slight wear to the edges of the hardback cover, but as a reference, it's unrivalled for information.
One currently on Abe Books in similar condition for £95.00
A nice pair of Officers collar badges for the Officers Service Dress in excellent condition
An early open back Pewter 74th Regiment of Foot button, pitted condition. Parkyn dates this worn up to 1820. Maker mark looks like Firmin, but hard to distinguish, Shank present.

9th Scottish Divisional thistle badge. Hand constructed in fine blue wool and applied to a khaki drill backing.
Most likely worn on a helmet cover as is too large in my opinion to have been worn on the tunic sleeve.
The white metal thistle usually encountered as a divisional sign for this division is tiny by comparison.
Rare survivor and the only example I have ever owned.
A Victorian Officers Dress belt to the H.L.I. brocade and leather in good condition, some very slight leather shrinkage. Maker Wm Anderson & Sons 14 George St,Edinburgh.
An officers dress belt to the K.O.S.B. Proper dark blue velvet backing, No makers name, Brocade a bit dirty but sound, but a scarce belt to find.
A nice untouched framed photograph showing 3 members of the Perthshire Rifle Vols. They have Snider Rifles, I would date this c1870s, gilt original frame, showing some gilt loss. Small size. Thanks to M.Previzier for identifying this photo for me.
