Macbeth's worst nightmare !!! :cheeky:

Does anyone know what the two variations signify, i.e. with and without the garter buckle ??

These badges were worn by both the army (Fife & Forfar/Black Watch) and Inspectors of the old Constabulary in Fife, but I'm at a loss re. the 'buckle' differences.

Clan MacDuff and Fife Council also come into the equation.

Robin - my first thoughts would have been the Regts. having the belt and buckle surround - but, that doesn't seem to

be the case. Since designs have to be registered , it may just be local wishes. However, there is probably more than

this. We will have to hope someone has local knowledge - or, knows where to research. Nice badges. Mervyn
