Glengarry badge, other ranks, 89th (Princess Victoria's) Regiment of Foot, 1874-1881
This regiment was raised in 1793, but only named after Princess Victoria in 1866 (even though she was then Queen). Earlier in 1833, Princess Victoria, in her first public engagement, presented the 89th with new Colours. In honour of this it added her coronet to its badge. The sphinx on the badge was presented to the 89th for its bravery during the Egyptian campaign in 1801.
