Cap badge identification?

#1
This is a rather pointless question but non-the-less it has been bugging me since I saw it.
Can some one tell me which regiment's cap badge this is? (The one the lad in front of the Kingo is wearing)
It just looked to me like a badge straight out of Nazi Germany.

Im going to risk it, waa shield set to maximum.

The Scots Dragoon Guards (carbiniers and grey).

It was actually the Romans who started the military love affairs with eagles.

Ah cheers for settling that for me lads.
I did think it was dragoons initially, on looking up the formation for 4th mechanized, as I was familiar with all the units badges apart from theirs. Only when doing a quick search for the dragoons did it come up with a completely different badge.
Thanks for that though, the annoying urge in my head begging to know what it was has now ceased :)

Napoleonic eagle to commerate Ensign Ewart's taking of a French Eagle at Waterloo, though IIRC he was a Sergeant when he started the charge and an Officer by the end of the day after he'd returned from it.

I think Ensign Ewart's is some way down the Royal Mile, and the only proper polishing needed is a quick rub against the back of your DPM clad legs surely, got me through quite a few years.....
