Default Unit badge on Tiger tank

Fairly sure the 'X' on the Tiger is the badge of Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry Highlanders. Anything to say it can't be?
It appears they captured a senior officer in one of the two TIgers they claimed that day at Magny (Aug 21,Trun)

I don't believe it is the badge of the SDG Highlanders. The cross of St. Andrew is not so prominent on the cap badge as is the 'X' on the tank.

But I'm always willing to be proven wrong.

More likely a cross to denote it was knocked out/ not in working order.

Very unlikely. Never ever seen it used on enemy tanks. You may be thinking of the 'Z' or 'W' used to denote Allied total losses.

Default Tiger Tank

What is the source of the image as that information might help in determining the symbol/badge?

Default Tiger Badge

Ah, that makes sense. Based on the diary entry, there is a good chance that the 'badge' could very well have been painted by the Cameron Highlanders of Ottawa (M.G.) as there is a cross of St. Andrew on their cap badge.
