The larger one is a KRRC pouch badge which has been converted to a brooch. I have the same with the screwposts still intact. It too is hallmarked,not sure of the year without checking. Ill post some images of the rear later.
The smaller one could be to any number of regiments. I doubt whether you find exactly which regt.

Images as promised.
Hallmarked Gaunt & Sons Bham 1933. The design must have stayed in use for a number of years going by the dates.
The later ones are the same design as the HMed badge but with a smooth bugle horn. Worn right up till 2007.

For interest an earlier design of KRRC pouch badge.
