Rob.

As you say, it has some age to it, appears to have been sympathetically repaired and the Stag appears to be a good clear example.

The badge containing the numeral 1, may be a QVC 1st Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers badge.

The other appears to be a generic Rifle Volunteers buglehorn, possibly a pouch badge.
