Do any of you gents know if the Glengarry as worm in the Crimea had a diced band?
I thought that it would be reasonably easy to find out but well ......

Jim, I found an image of Robert Gibb's painting "Letters from Home", depicting two officers of the Sutherland Highlanders in the Crimea, clearly depicting a diced band band:

And another black & white photo of the 93rd from the Crimea seems to confirm Gibb:

Hope that helps put the matter beyond doubt. :wink:
