Thanks for the "heads up". Curiosity forced me to put this in my watch list just to see the hammer price. Check out his offering of a 1/24 campaign medal also.

The price is already at $255 - anyone any idea how much these usually make? Certainly not cheap!

The seller's campaign medal states that is was issued to:

1793 SERGT.R.TURNER.1-24TH FOOT.

Does anyone know where Sgt Turner served?

I don't think the seller claims that the badge belonged to Sgt Turner. I can't comment on the price of the glengarry badge but the medal will probably sell for in excess of 1,000. A similar medal to one of the other imperial units would probably be half that, simply because their regiments were not at Rorke's Drift or Isandlwana.
