I attach photos of some cap tallies that my aunt was given at a fleet visit either in Gibraltar or somewhere in Spain in the 1930s which includes a Hood one.

Essex Yeomanry fantasy?

I can not find this rather uninspiring badge in any book so just wondering if it is a fantasy badge despite looking quite old? All comments welcome. Denis
