The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Badge

The Cap Badge of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (Example)
The badge of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards features an eagle representing "the French Imperial Eagle that was captured by Sergeant Charles Ewart, the Royal Scots Greys at Waterloo, from the French 45th Regiment of Foot," with two crossed carbines behind.
The Queen is Colonel-in-Chief of the regiment, and she has a brooch version of the badge, which appears to be set with diamonds. As with the rest of her regimental badges, she wears it when attending events related to the regiment.
