So I would expect the RDY to have a mixture of bronze badges from several dies and possibly even have bought General Staff badges.

The only picture of a RDY Other Rank I have seen, had a white metal badge where as the officers are in bronze.
Alan, I think you mean 15th Londons.

Yes I do!

The Wilts Yeo style

The ORs' style of 15th Londons.

Same regt but 2 very different officers badges. It illustrates the error in trying to attribute certain badge styles to specific regts.

For a modern example of the same thing up to a few years ago one of the the Yeomanry Regt's officers wore General Staff badge rather than the regtl badge worn by ORs.

"It illustrates the error in trying to attribute certain badge styles to specific regts. "

Could not agree more.
