I am thinking for mounted officers shabraques. The smaller stars appear to be the rank stars for the shabraque in certain orders of dress; whilst the larger one for another order of dress.

Best in the world!

An excellent look at the Guards of old. Of interest; The the Cavalry officers accompanying the King in pre 14 full dress and leopard skin Shabraques.
The Guardsmen are still wearing the full Slade...

They look like metal versions of the IG NCO mess dress badges, which are silver embroidered I think, but perhaps these are for the white dress as previously mentioned.

I can't see the shame part if it. Very nice indeed. Could it not be that it was done by the wearer, perhaps for walking out whilst still in service?

16th QL arm badge?

Did the 16th Lancers ever adopt an NCO arm badge prior to becoming the 16th/5th? I cannot seem to find any reference to one.

I think the photos distort the peak somewhat and it is a small size cap, which accentuates the size of the peak. A good cap however.
The badge looks to be an OR WM, not silver. How is it attached?...

Difficult to make out some of the details of that cap badge. The sphinx looks akin to the large frond type badge.
That is corrosion, not dirt. I would recommend at least a good brushing with hot...

I find that these genuine 18H slider cap badges are quite scarce. Virtually every one I seem to see is either bad or has lugs, which I just learned (thanks Luke) are collars.

As far as I am aware, no GM mottos were worn or approved. I have to wonder if at least some of these GM mottos were intended to be silver or nickel plated, but never got that far?

A very nice example of the hair pin slider with reinforcement on top. I believe this particular fitting was unique to this badge.

Are there any extent photos showing this badge in use? At any rate, I would presume the "blue" is the normal royal blue, which is nearly black, but can be discerned in outdoor light.

A nice lot! I cannot see any remains of the scroll attachment on the Leicester, so it may be a genuine territorial badge.

It appears to have some age to it, judging by the reverse and the overall tone.
If not an arm badge, perhaps a Pagri flash? Very nice, whatever it is.

I can't tell if the badge in the photo is all GM or Bi, but it is certainly the pattern with the Ich Dien scroll ends attached to the bottom one.
