Cap badge, other ranks, Black Watch (Royal Highlanders), 1902-1935
This badge features a rayed and faceted star similar to the Star of the Order of the Thistles. Upon the centre, within a wreath of thistles, an oval frosted circle bears the burnished motto: 'nemo me impune lacesset' (meaning no one attacks me with impunity'). This is surmounted by a monarchial crown. Within the circlet the figure of St Andrew is depicted holding his cross upon a frosted ground. On either side of the crown, frosted scrolls bear the burnished unit title.
