Hi Andrew
I have no doubt that the shoulder is c/4/norfolk
The silver plate Norfolk badge I have spent some time comparing it to my w/m version they are very close many of the features seem to be the same examples britannia's nose the fork of the trident the way that middle laurel leaf third row up on both sides kicks out at the top the biggest difference is the void between the trident shaft and the left arm which doesn't exist on my example.
As to why a silver plate exists if the w/m is 1vb why not silver plate I don't know what pattern officers had I had assumed it would have been a w/m version of the regulars but I have not seen one

I have one from the same die. it's not a common variation and differs 'from the norm' (finer die details aside) in three immediately distinctive ways: The bend in the olive sprig meeting the laurel wreath, the large circular blow holes and the 'flatness' of the shield. All my other variations, regardless of the die maker, have a 'domed' shield. A good find for your superb Norfolk collection.

Two more happy with the economy seem to think I have seen somewhere about being three variations.
I think the Bimetal is ok but the face is a bit punch like although trident is not square

Both spot on examples. You are right about there being three variants of the 1916 badge. That being said, I am always keen to find if there are any more of course.
