Territorial battalions such as this were not always so strict to dress regulations, particularly during war time. They used what they had.

Hard to say if they are genuine or not. All have been heavily polished in more recent times and have so much damage and replaced or missing parts.
As I understand it, one of the major difficulties...

It may well be of WW1 vintage, but could also be slightly later. The overall shape and the leather binding is more typical of that time period, although officers could and did have leather bindings...

The only one I am completely comfortable with is the Seaforth, a later WW2 era badge. The Gordon may be ok, but the lugs are a bit iffy.
The QC KOSB is bad in my opinion.

This badge is a bit of a mystery. It is clearly British made as no US maker used lugs. It similar to an Infantry adjutant officer collar badge, but too large and of different style. As a long time...

I can't imagine why such pains were taken for this particular badge. Was some WW1 soldier bored? We will never know.

Must not forget the Gordons also sported the black line on officer full dress tunics and black buttons on the spats of all ranks in memory of Sir John Moore.

It does look like an arm badge as mentioned, but too small for that. Another possibility is Indian Army, although I am not sure which regiment. I think it is a cap badge at the size it is with those...

What a spectacular cap! I am drooling...I have a fondness for these FSC caps with bosses and stupidly passed on a Northumberland Fusiliers example I had some years ago.

There seems to be a great variety of RF badges and I think the gilded one you just received is likely a good one and really could be for an NCO, privately purchased perhaps.

Towards the end, there is a shot of an open area with...

I am not so sure the reinforced 9L badges are fake. I have this one. They are rather crudely made however.

The R. Hants is fine. I am not so sure about the slider on the CG. It looks like a type seen on some fakes; the FN slider is a bit different, although I could be wrong.

I do not recognize the camo either. Suffice to say it is not British, but likely one of the many camo types originating out of parts of Asia or Africa in 60s or 70s.

You can easily remove the badge for inspection, but I am sure it is an OR WM badge. Officer's badges for this cap should be silver or silvered.
