London Scottish regimental badge

This badge belonged to a soldier who served with the London Scottish Regiment during World War 2.

It depicts a Lion Rampant on the Cross of St. Andrew. Above the lion is a scroll inscribed 'LONDON' and below the lion a scroll inscribed 'SCOTTISH'. The cross is superimposed on a circle which bears the words 'STRIKE' and 'SURE' on either side and, at the bottom, the inscription 'S. AFRICA 1900-02'. Round the edge of the badge is a wreath of thistles.

Badge provided by Neil McKechnie for a War Detectives project in 2005
