This stunning cap badge is made of chrome plated pewter and features the iconic Maltese Cross emblem as well as Hook and Ladder firefighter symbols. It measures at approximately 2 and 1/4 inches in diameter. It attaches to the hat with a traditional pin-style backing. This badge does not work with our Class A Honor Guard Hat. Made in Scotland.
One of the most ancient forms of showing your clan affiliation, the cap badge is an ornamental fitting that attaches to a glengarry, balmoral or feather bonnet. It fits onto the ribbon style rosette on the left side of the hat. The badge can also be worn on a plaid or woman's sash as a decorative element to compliment the tartan. Wearing this badge is a great way to proudly show your clan crest or highland military regiment.

Not what it seems
Posted by Kelly Deboard on 27th Feb 2020
The badge is not a cap badge. It does not have the single screw pin in the back, it has an actual badge pin. For a sash or something to that nature, it may work perfect, but for my class A hat... not at all. (John's reply: Hi Kelly, This pin is not for Class A Hats, only glengarries and balmorals. I'll make a note of that in the description and you can send it back if you wish. We do have the pins with the single post that you can screw onto a Class A hat. You can see those here: https://www.jhiggins.net/fire-department-hats/?sort=featured&page=4
Hope this helps.

This Cap Badge is about 2.25" square, it is utterly perfectly sized to go on a Balmoral. I'm going to do kind of an old fashioned thing and stitch a square of Firefighter tartan on to the
the balmoral ala WWI soldiers and put the cap badge in the center of 3" tartan square.
