At that period in time the MPSC was other ranks only. Officers were seconded from their own units. Those badges with the wreath are not MPSC in spite of what some publications might have us believe.

It appears to be a bronzed brass OSD cap badge with fixing tabs to the rear so it has no connection to the MPSC which was an other-ranks only corps. This pattern of badge with the wreath has been...

The Leeds Rifles badge in the opening post is that of the inter-war period 7th/8th Battalion so is unlikely to be the real deal.

It certainly looks to be a silver anodized aluminium badge to me. It's not an officer quality badge at all.

The MPSC was a WOs/NCOs only corps so no OSD badges were worn. Possibly Corps of Army Schoolmasters or Royal Defence Corps.

They wore the RA cap badge and before the introduction of BD they wore the eagle and castle collar badges. My wife's father served in 148th Field Regiment and became a Singapore POW.
