It is a "sweetheart" badge, worn by civilians for whatever reason. These types were of course never worn in service.

Looking at the photographs, I would have thought that it is large because it is a converted cap badge, originally worn upon the various headdress by members of the regiment.

hello

the same orange one, i do not think mine is a converted badge, it's too easy to bent, not the good metal i think. there is a little mark on the back " england"

may be a commercial product for civilians made by an official badge maker

regards
christophe

Obviously not a converted cap badge, I think a company called agnew used to do full sized and diffent colour for some reason enamelled badges.
