Default Unknown titles for ID

Hi All
Can anyone ID these titles please?
LH - Light Horse?
WMI - W(estern) Mounted Infantry?
VVCR - There was a Volunteer Composite Reg in SA which had a similar cypher but not sure where the extra V comes from, Victoria Volunteer Comp Reg?
Thanks, cheers,
Alex

It's not an exact match, but it's close - could the LH title be a hat badge for the Lumsden's Horse / Indian Mounted Cavalry Corps?

If the second title is VCVR, how about the Victoria College Volunteer Rifles? They were based at Victoria College (now the University of Stellenbosch) in the 1880s and '90s.

WMI could be Warren's Mounted Infantry, an ABW irregular unit, also from the western Cape.
