Default V small Inniskilling DG collar badge?

I believe this very small collar which has come into my possession, to be Inniskilling DG. I first thought, in brass ( as there’s a bit of a shine on highlights) but on reflection ( no pun!) it’s probably bronze. There’s a very small ‘J R GAUNT LONDON’ tablet fixed between the lugs. Size is approx 23x21mm ( it’s roughly square). Had a few of their bits, including collars, over the years but nothing this small. Am I correct? Officers? Era?

I think this may actually be a 6th Inniskilling Dragoons OSD collar badge, not the later 5th.
