Managed to find another 7th (Fife) Bn TF 1908 WM title.
The 7 numeral has been reaffixed with old lead solder resulting in some loss of height so not an exact matched pair.

A exact matching pair may be of value to the collector; but in actual issue and wear, such would often not be the case.

Officers gilt St. Andrews collar badge 37.5mm high.
This pattern not recorded in Churchill and does not match any of my other examples.

I too have this die stamped gilt collar badge, but again, have no reference to it at all.

Found another die variation of ORs badge.
It is WM just extremely dirty. IT spelling with unusually small and well defined lettering on the scrolls. Also the width of the boards on St. Andrew's cross are only 2mm wide.

Difficult to make out some of the details of that cap badge. The sphinx looks akin to the large frond type badge.
That is corrosion, not dirt. I would recommend at least a good brushing with hot water and dish soap to bring it out a bit and get a bit of the crud off. I would also think a total "restoration" may involve some damage to the details on this particular example, so perhaps not advisable.

It’s the fake that says ‘Memo’ not ‘Nemo’.
