Unclear cap badge in photograph.

Can anyone please identify the cap badge that these officers are wearing? The original photograph measures 3 inches by two inches and is not in great condition.

Royal Field Artillery gunner with non standard buttons.

This is an oddity but may have no significance. This gunner is wearing non standard buttons, neither Royal Artillery or General Service pattern. They appear to be the economy Royal Arms buttons.

Thanks Paul,

I believe that it is a fake but I wanted to see it in the flesh, as I could not see the maker's mark clearly in the photograph that I was sent. It will be going back.
