The last pic is Manchester OTC, agreed. The other buttons you show don't seem to be. I'm not aware that the lion design has ever changed for this OTC unit?

Yes, agreed. There’s always something different that seems to buck the accepted trend. I wasn’t aware there was a beret badge different in size either, always learning! I assumed the RN squaddies got...

Alan, can Norfolk collars be found in such a large size as the example seen in the original post? All my Norfolk collars are approximately 1” in height. That example in the OP is twice the size. Just...

Thanks Leigh, my previous assumption was that ATS wore only a collar on their chest of the unit they were affiliated to. A full sized badge being worn as such is news to me.

No worries, thanks. Nothing wrong with a well loved badge. So it's more cap badge sized. Not seen one with loops, so this is where I shut up and learn from the experts!

Looks ok to me, albeit polished to within an inch of her life. Assuming it to be a post-Victorian collar with the N/S loops?

I believe the centre badge with lions and crown is something to do with Danish customs officials. I assume it to be 'original' in that I cannot think of a reason why one would reproduce such an item?
