WW1 uniform
« on: Monday 12 February 18 14:18 GMT (UK) »
Hi, can anyone tell me what the cross above the lance corporal stripe signifies, It's a WW1 uniform and I believe it's a Glasgow Pals HLI regiment.
Many thanks
Colin.

Hi Colin,
Looks like a St. Andrew's Cross but don't know the significance except as stated above some kind of Divisional patch.

Possibly 6th Black Watch/Royal Highlanders?

If the uniform is WW1, then the LAA Regiment can be discounted except that it had Cameronian antecedents.  The photo, although much later and not too distinct, bottom right of this page of the Cameronians web site http://cameronians.org/introduction/index.html  shows a very similar arm badge so Philip's find would seem a good spot.
