It is the case that many metal badges were worn in the later interwar years, but my own (admittedly perhaps faulty) research would indicate that cloth badges were predominate, at least in the Infantry.
This may have had something to do with the two battalion system, wherein they apparently had the opportunity to express their pre-Cardwell numbers without censorship in India, as so many cloth Pagri badges indicate.
