Default Indian made sidecaps

I have alway been persuaded that the natural setting for a cap badge is its proper piece of headdress, still they cab be quite bulky and occupy a lot of space. Not the FS sidecap, though, and even less its Indian Made Khaki Drill variant. For your consideration: one KD sidecap badged to the Royal Indian Army Service Corps (economy pattern cap badge or possibly a collar badge?) a rather fine Barathea SD FS sidecap with the same cap badge and an East Sussex KD sidecap. It looks like all Indian made KD sidecaps are are lined with airtex?
