A very scarce whistle and crossbelt plate to the 2nd VB Scottish Rifles, worn 1887 to 1908 when they became the 6th Battalion Scottish Rifles.
This was purchased nearly 40 years ago from the Estate of Major R. Gray of Blantyre, along with the large Portrait Photograph shown with him wearing his crossbelt, this Photograph and Frame can be purchased seperately for £135. Postage would need to be calculated. as it is a large heavy portrait photograph and frame approx size 26.5" x 23.5" or preferably picked up in person from Glasgow.
A pair of small sized white metal pipers buttons. Showing Saint Andrew on the cross. Not an exact match.
Three World War One Officers caps to Durham Light Infantry.

Made by Thomas Mathew & co 69 George street Edinburgh.
Again great condition some moth tracking to the scarlet band but nothing severe.
The last cap is the full dress cap with DLI black horn buttons and woven central cap boss.
