With the basic ranker's 25th Dragoons cap badge, get yourself a good Indian made example, rather that the usual British made.

I would say the genuine British made badges are not usual since Indian made examples are infinitely more common.

Personally I would seek a British made badge as these have not been restruck from the original die.

Far too many fake British examples around and quite frankly, an original example can be very poor when compared with the top end of the Indian made examples, I certainly know which I'd rather have.
