Large 17th Lancers

Denis, the large 17th Lancer badge with three loops has been suggested as to being an early "Chad" arm badge.

A gunnery...

As Griff says, Gallipoli, Egypt & Palestine December 1915 to March 1917, this is the problem with sand cast badges, it could be 100+ years old or made last week.

Soldier magazine used to have ads in for this type of thing, generally Ghurka based with fantasy badges and crossed kukris.

No doubt some were bought by punters and the badges removed.
