Dark green hose tops would be appropriate to the DLI. I would also guess that the cheap colorization would not be able to duplicate anything like gosling green, thus the wrong color.

Pagri badges or flashes were not generally worn in 70s and 80s. The PoW plumes were also worn by many Indian Army regiments.
A better look at the entire photo and his uniform might help.

They are DLI and NF. The collar badges are those of the DLI and the flash is dark green with red DLI, which cannot be made out in old black and white.

Good eyes Luke. Under an eyeglass, I do note these marks which of course should not be there. Someone took some trouble to do this, but why is something else.

Staffordshire Yeomanry?

I know this badge has been discussed before, and I recall some confusion as to whether it is Staffs Yeo. or a school badge. This is an old badge with some polishing wear and is definitely not cut off...

Were all of these 1921 to 58 badges die cast like this or were some die stamped

Of course one must see the reverse of any given badge to be sure, but those familiar with this badge could probably guess correctly without.

9th and 16th Lancers

These do not look like typical fakes, but the 16th has an unvoided crown and the 9th, whilst having the expected four lugs (the feet are OK, not the usual spade phonies), I am just not sure.

The lozenge is the typical basic RA backing for the Pagri badge, with various insignia placed upon it. They were usually metal devices, so this may be some post war incarnation for the battledress? I...

Yes, the Hawaiian Coast Artillery Brigade was active at the time of the Pearl attack.
The other sphinx and rose may be an East Lancashire Regt. Pagri flash, but this is not certain.

I just saw this post and wonder myself. There seems to be quite a few variations of this 21 to 58 badge that are die cast and not stamped.

An original badge to my knowledge. Frankly, I think the WD should have taken some of these makers and their crudities to account. Lambourne should have been ashamed to turn out something like this.

I think it is RIC, but there was nothing to prevent it's wear by him in the London Irish. It is close enough in style that no one would likely notice or care.

Well then, apparently we have an as yet unknown variant of a Lincolnshire badge. I would guess that is a numeral 4 underneath the Sphinx.

Well if that is the case, this is a mystery photo. The Sphinx is not the Lincoln style, so the attribution may indeed be incorrect.

A fine and rare uniform. I note that Yeomanry chevrons tend to have wider lace and a more pronounced curve to the downward point than line regiments.

Strange that he is wearing the generic grenade collar badges as the RF had their own regimental pattern and collar badges were not normally worn at all on service dress at the time of the photo.
