The badge is made of gilt metal and is a Garter surmounted by an Queen Victoria Crown. The Garter has the motto ‘Honi soit qui mal y pense’. In the middle of the garter as a separate price, is the Union Rose, in silver with a gilt centre, on a black velvet background. This centre is of the type found on Officers Helmet Plates.
The backing plate is made of brass and is fixed by wires to the badge. Loops are fixed to the backing plate which allows fixing to the Glengarry cap
