Sorry, looks like I've opened a can of worms, so it would be nice to get more opinions. Having seen the rear of the 4 badges you posted with E-W lugs, I don't really like any of them.

Hi Arthur
The proportions for this are not quite 2" x 3", it's a few mm's short on each side, though that might just be shrinkage.

Yes, I should have mentioned that the hallmark is 1929. Also thought there might be an Indian connection but that's all.

Hi Herve
That is a postwar badge, I don't think there was a badge like that until the 1960's, but not sure of the date.

Which badge exactly are you after? Berets didn't really come into service in the RN until after the war. They were worn, but it was uncommon.
