Will have a look and see what I can find. An old VAD veteran gave me her uniform and insignia years ago and I think there might be a hat band included.

See attached Edwardian button. I had an AVC bi-metal collar badge years ago which still had the original pin.
The suffragettes in UK were known to use these on policemen who tried to arrest them.

Thanks!

The Lancers Museum has a wide range of badged objects like this one. They must have had badges all over them. I think that it is for a stirrup of bridle
