They seem to be mostly found in SA which suggest to me that they are what the books say.

Rosemary

It's after WW2 so it may not be military at all. - not one I recognise. St Johns ambulance or similar organisation might be a contender. It's not a Royal Navy or Regular Army uniform.

The OTC badge is based on a school badge design that according to the School Archives was designed in 1918. It's not clear what the OTC wore beforehand but I would suspect the same bonnet badge as...

The design is right for an enlisted MMG soldier but as Luke says it is a copy and not an original badge. Many MMG wore the basic MGC badge without the extra title and this is seen in WW1 photos.

It's a dud because the original OR's cap badges were die struck and that one is a cast copy in my opinion.

Richard

I am unaware of any bronze version simply because the KOSB wore silver badges in their bonnets. The only variation was I believe the Adjutant who wore a peaked cap with a reduced size...

The very small loops recorded are typical of those used for civilian school caps which does reinforce the view that they were 1930's school hat badge and not for the OTC.

I have left it as it's patina rather than anything that would corrode it. You could polish it up but it would lose its character in my opinion.
