Default Shamrock Collar badges

I'm not sure what Regiment / Corps ( Irish Guards ? ) these belong too. If they are not Irish Guards I will put them up for sale. White metal lugs intact H 26mm W 30mm.

Not worn by South Africa Irish. Perhaps an item used on Irish Guards tropical mess dress. Easy removable for dry cleaning.

Could be for the London Irish pipers. They wore shamrocks. Somebody put some anodised ones up on here recently.

They look like metal versions of the IG NCO mess dress badges, which are silver embroidered I think.
