Default Colour Sergeant Bullion Badge & Viking's Head Formation Patch Identification Please

Hello All

I have just received the 2 badges pictured below. I believe the bullion one is a colour sergeant's rank badge but can anyone be more specific with the unit/regiment, The 2nd one I have no idea about so identification would be appreciated please. Once identified I am more than likely going to be moving these on so if anyone is interested then please contact me.

The C. Sgt. badge is for a rifle regiment, likely the Rifle Brigade. It would have three black chevrons below. A very nice and scarce badge.
