Default Gibraltar Regiment collar badge question

Hello
Quick question, the anodised Gibraltar Regiment collars, are the keys on them in the same direction, or is there a left and right if you know what I mean?
Thank you for your time

Chris

Nor me,plenty of images but nothing you can get a definitive answer from.
I wonder if on full dress the castle is rotated so it sits vertically .

No idea, possibility, therefore it'll make sense being facing pairs.
Anybody got a pair?

Don't know if this helps :

"Facing Pair of Royal Gibraltar Regiment Staybrite Collar Badges
These are unworn and are complete with lugs, plates and pins. Key below castle faces left or right to create the facing pair."

Thank you both for your help.

I see you have an answer now. However, I took these photos earlier before I got side-tracked.
