Officers' glengarry badge, 71st (Highland) Regiment of Foot (Light Infantry), 1874 (c)
The badge of this regiment depicts a bugle horn with the number of the unit at its centre. The bugle was the symbol of all British light infantry regiments. The quick marching light infantry units used these instruments instead of carrying cumbersome drums.
