Balmoral of Lt William Bell - 15th Bn.

Balmoral – 1914 – 15th Battalion

This pattern of balmoral was made in Canada from 1914 – 1916 until replaced by a British issue. The head band is hand knit and the balmoral is Fuzzy Wool. It carries the 48th Highlanders cap badge. The balmoral was issued to Pte William Richard Bell, later Lieutenant, most likely at Valcartier Quebec where the 15th Battalion (48th Highlanders) and the first Canadian Expeditionary Force was assembled for passage to England.
