Upon further research, the diamond, or lozenge flash in that shade of green is without doubt the Worcesters and was worn into WW2. Prior to WW1, the Worcesters FSH flash was a green square with an...

I am not sure when the boss badge was adopted (there were two types, the earlier on khaki, the later on scarlet), so I am thinking that this standard style OSD badge was a very early one, prior to...

The RWF collar is the type worn by officers (or RSM) on the mess dress lapels.

It certainly does appear to have traces of green paint. This would clinch it for the Worcesters I think. I don't know about the number however.
