Certainly, the badger head and five tassles are A&S Highlanders  style, bullion cords to the tassels being for officers levee dress.  While Full Dress was suspended in 1914, Dress Regulations were renewed in 1934 and officers required Full Dress items for levee dress, including the sporran. Items of 'Victorian' vintage, that is pre-1901 (approximately) will have the Queen Victoria crown wherever that symbol is shown on  badging and other appointments.  That's not to say items might not be handed down and such details winked at in certain instances.
