Home counties reserve

Hello Guys,
Would I be correct in thinking that this would be a home counties reserve regiment cap badge circa 1900 ? Or is it something else ?

It is a collar worn by a number of the newly raised Boer war era Royal Reserve regiments including the Home Counties.

Thanks Alan, I thought it was a cap badge as it's the same size as this General service corps. Were the cap badges bigger than this ?

The QVC cap badges are 5cm square.
