It has been suggested that it could be Yorkshire or Lancashire Yeomanry related but I still can't find a positive ID. I wondered if it was lugged arm badge conversion but cannot find one that matches.

I’ve asked Keith Hook about this badge, it’s one he’s never seen before and confirms it’s neither Yeomanry or Hampshire related. He also doesn’t think OTC/Cadets, I didn’t realise this until he told me just now but he had a good collection of these which he sold to Hugh King.

I would say if it had any connection to any Yeomanry you could bet your mortgage Keith would’ve known.

So it remains a mystery it seems.

This article from 1923 states that a w/m rose was worn by the militia. Sadly no photo.

I was going to add this morning but forgot, whilst browsing dead Spartan saw a wm rose collar design for 4th West York Militia, it also noted the 1st Royal Lancashire wore the same patter.

Could be an avenue worth exploring.

I am of the opinion that with a slider the badge is for the cap and is early 20th Century and probably not military.

I am leaning towards badges worn by people that we havent considered such as one of the Yorkshire Ambulance Services, the staff at a posh Harrogate Hotel or security staff at a Hampshire Bank, etc etc.

Just my thoughts

regards

I think the one worn on the rosette was smaller but I am not ruling it out just yet.
