Default Pre 1967 TA Battalions forming the Wessex Volunteers

Good Afternoon
As part of my collection of Wessex Volunteers/Regiment badges and uniform I have a few questions on cap badges of the TA units that went to make up The Wessex Volunteers in 1967.
As far as I know Metal Cap Badges of the 5th Battalion The Gloucestershire Regiment (TA) and the 4th Battalion The Dorset Regiment (TA) had no inscription on the plinth under the sphinx.

With the advent of anodised aluminium in the 50ís were badges made specially for these Battalions without the inscriptions?

I assume that the other Battalions that formed the new companies for the Wessex Volunteers, 4th Devons, 4th/5th Royal Hampshire, 4th/6th Royal Berkshire and 4th Wiltshire all used the same badges as their parent regiment.
Would appreciate any information . Neil
