Cap badge of the Cameronians 2nd Bat Scottish Rifles

Not true Cameronians badge has a bugle in it but this surmounted by a star surrounded by a wreath.

This badge is described so: On 1st July 1881, the 53rd Shropshire Regt and the 85th King's Light Infantry ... Light Infantry (KSLI);

the Shropshire Militia became the 3rd Special Reserve (S R)

Hi, Smuts is still there including the Shilton, which is now a Restuarant. Many of the buildings are used by small firms, Spandau prison was knocked down and a new building for naafi and scvs built, in 1994 the buildings were taken over by a supermarket chain and a eectronics and media shop.
