See attached Edwardian button. I had an AVC bi-metal collar badge years ago which still had the original pin.
The suffragettes in UK were known to use these on policemen who tried to arrest them.

Hi, can't help with two of them but I think the sphinx badge is for an interpreter.
I would be interested in this one when you are ready to move it on. Have sent a PM.
Thanks!

That particular variety of rising sun collar badge is typical of WW1, probably made in UK.

Keith, many thanks for trying to trace him. The Lancer Barracks Museum did not have any records either. As a "Gentleman of the Light Horse", he was probably an ordinary trooper not an officer.

The Lancers Museum has a wide range of badged objects like this one. They must have had badges all over them. I think that it is for a stirrup of bridle
but hopefully Mick can tell us for sure.

The 59th would appear to be WW2 since it mentions a 1930-42 militia regiment. A totally new one to my other three rising sun patterns.

Looking forward to seeing 1917, all good reports.

Thanks Simon, strange than the design should be so close to the musketry badge. So we are left with the question: what is it?

Musketry skill at arms

A variety that is new to me. I would be interested to learn when it was worn and by whom. It should be more common if it was a standard British musketry badge.
Thanks.
