The Officers one isnt the same as the RSMs then.
Unless they have altered the finish from silver/gilt to gilt .
Could be another one to find.

Could well be Mac,just as there was a change in the collars.
If the silver gilt has gone,it will be a scarce item.

I have spoken to the RSM at the time and just got of the phone with the Regimental secretary The Gold Silver Collar is not RL. They only had a few belts made with gold badges. In fact they are about to get a few more in the future. I think your large badge is 16th/5th perhaps ?. Its the only one i have seen.

Default RL cross belts

The two badges I pictured were sourced via the Regiment. Only got this one pic on file at present.

We have been luckier than most with bits and bobs your silver pouch badge is bang on the other must have been a proto type or sample ?. The RSM at the time the Officer belts were made says 3 were made bespoke for the regiment CO ADJ RSM to which i put up a picture everyone else wears older regimental belts. Again heres the picture i took of the RSM wearing the belt at Lee Darkers funeral . All gold in colour and they are going to get some more in the near future.
