    It's hard to work out the scale but do you think it could be WWI?

    If so I reckon it might be a unit indicator.

    Quite a few Inf Bns used a red diamond but the red diamond with the single red bar relates to 'A' Coy , 5/6th Bn The Royal Scots. It is the colour of the bar that denotes the company;

    Red = A
    Green = B
    Yellow = C
    Lt Blue = D
    Black = HQ

    The Diamond (it's actually a square - a diamond was used but was more elongated) should be about 2" sq and the bar 2" x .4" but I doubt it was that precise in reality.

    If it isn't WWI then I am not sure at this time.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    The red square and bar are home guard skill badges or similar, I posted a thread with them in a collection with discussion
