From, as I recall, Kipling & King (I'll check tomorrow).
The photo shows the "wrong" badge for the SD cap being worn in that form of headgear instead of the correct double spur collar badge.

Thank you.
Another possibility I considered was that the badge may have been an adaptation of a Volunteer units W/M and enamel badge, the G/M scroll being pinned on and the badge worn after 1908,...

You may be thinking of the Birmingham Mint series?

I know little about these units but I think 16 Coy is or was represented by a platoon of a later unit.
The insignia continued in use or had been resurrected by a more recent formation?
