Your badge is absolutely spot on. I would be more than happy with it. I have one like this with a slider and another joined one with lugs.
I'm sure it would benefit from a trip to Dave.

Looks like a standard O/R's collar badge to me. If you look at my album you should find some in it.
An officers cap badge would have the scroll under the castle.

What I found amazing was the condition it was still in. Apart from a...
