Hello Leigh - I notice the cap badge is blades again, but collars are 'loops'.

Yes, I wonder what the unusual (for British) blade fittings are about?
To slip into a cloth backing patch?

Default Guards Brigade Field Hospital

Once again my thoughts on this badge:-

The staff of this Boer War Hospital were probably not recruited from any of the Guards Regts, so Guards quality badges were not required.

The badges worn by the Hospital Staff were locally made due to the distance to badge makers in Britain, many of the shoulder titles and slouch hat badges worn during this conflict were made from sheet brass with variations as expected.

As for the blades, I am not sure what headdress was worn . . !
