Looks like an OSD type cap badge with the blades cut short, though I am no aware if the GG used OSD badges? Maybe WWI if they did.
Cheers,

It identified the soldier occupying the Bed Space in a Barrack Room, use late Victorian era up to late 50's, some Depots retain the practice for longer than others :cool:
