Default Hoping for help in identifying a collar (?) badge -Thunderbolt design with queen's

Dear all, I have a small collection of badges I am.sorting through. Most I can identify, but I am hoping for help in identifying one - a collar (?) badge I think, appears to be gilt with a Thunderbolt design with a King's crown above. It has two little holes and then two copper lugs at the back. Any hints much appreciated!



Regards, Anthony

Hi
I would suggest that it is REME item which is missing its silver "Scroll/horse and Globe" emblem.

Yep - I agree with that. Its a broken badge.

Very many thanks Bill A for the welcome and Dragon 166 and slick_mick for the information, which explains the two otherwise seemingly purposeless holes on the thunderbolt. I really should have guessed that they were fixings for some lost piece but even if I had done, I don't think I would have made the REME connection (I got stuck down the byway of Signals/Reconnaissance Corps), so thanks in particular for that.
