Regimental brooches are generally small pin-brooches depicting miniature badges of units. Usually they were commercially manufactured and some are still manufactured today. There were eventually hundreds of commercial designs, typically smaller versions of the cap (or ships) badge, in combinations of brass, silver, gold, enamel and mother of pearl. The Queen's Edinburgh Rifles was a brigade of Rifle Volunteers raised in the City of Edinburgh in 1859. It later formed two battalions of the Royal Scots, which fought in World War I at Gallipoli, in Palestine and on the Western Front. The two battalions combined between the world wars before being converted into an air defence regiment of the Royal Artillery (RA). This served in Anti-Aircraft Command during World War II and continued in the postwar Territorial Army (TA) until 1961, when its successors were converted into Royal Engineers (RE). In very good condition with pin and lugs intact and measuring; 30 x 27mm. The price includes UK delivery. BA 434.
