Manchester’s,
As Victorian badges & buttons were Brass for officers and bullion were believed to be gilt, as this magnificent badge is silver I would propose a police item as their buttons and badges tend to be white metal.

The badge on the right I have no idea of the organisation it is to but yet again a splendid badge.

Bantam is spot on insignia is difficult to research for HMP frustratingly and he is very knowledgeable on the subject as is Frank FHWhittle and Destro.

Altcar badge is a known patten and is seen worn in photographs albeit black and white

Regards to all

Stephen
