Default unidentified LF badge and buttons

This is an ongoing e-bay auction:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WW1-LF-re...sAAOSwj39dm6jL

I have been looking for the identity of the buttons for many years. This is the first time the buttons come with a badge.
Does anyone recognise the badge (and the buttons)?

I am not associated with the seller.

Badge is nothing to do with Lancashire Fusiliers.

I think the badge is a Legion of Frontiersmen collar badge, an early one. There is a version in a more stylised font (like the button design).

Phil, I doubt if they would have been allowed to use the Royal Crown on their insignia.
