Default George V

Hi all.
Is anyone able to identify what this badge is supposed to be ? I thought Military Police/Provost/Prison to start with, but the wreath is different and not round to start with. It reminds me of a German zinc/buntmetal badge ?

Looks like the badge worn by a "Honorary Chaplain To King George V" to me but I could well be wrong .....

Wow. I would never have found that. It looks the same badge as others when I search it, although all the silver finish has gone (or is it the bronze version?).

From "DRESS AND INSIGNIA WORN AT HIS MAJESTY'S COURT." (ISSUED WITH THE AUTHORITY OF THE LORD CHAMBERLAIN). Published in 1921

Quote:
The following distinctions are worn by the Chaplains to the King :—
A Silver Gilt Badge embodying the Royal Cypher is always worn on the Scarf (left side) by His Majesty's Domestic Chaplains and Chaplains.

Army Chaplains appointed Honorary Chaplains to the King wear a special Bronze Badge, consisting of the Royal Cypher and Crown within an oval wreath.
