    It's certainly a nice original Tam-o-Shanter, but the badge is definitely not original or correct. The Black Watch (the British, Canadian or any other incarnation) NEVER wear this badge on this type of cap. The correct device would be a red hackle (which is basically the trademark of the regiment). The badge was worn with the Glengarry type cap only. Other Canadian Scottish regiments would have worn a badge with a tartan cloth backing though.

    I have examples I could take photos of, if you like...

    Also on my standard '45 Canadian beret I placed this 1915 badge as a gap filler as I don't own any others
