MRA, or MHA I think, or those letters in some order...
M in red; R in blue and A/H in green.
The only other possibility is the R is an F and the short arm of the F isn't visible.
Cheers,
Alex

Thanks Alex,

I can cross reference that with some 1860-1880 Army Lists for the 6th Lancashire RVC which might provide a match.

i have eliminated all the officers from my Army Lists but unfortunately there are no lists for other ranks with which to compare.

Reminds me a little of the 13th/18th Hussars arm badge', I know it nothing to do with them, but similar shape.

Thanks for all the interest.

I should have shown the front so here they are.
As you can see I have managed to corner the market over the last few decades.

RHM is what I see.
Maybe PHM

I think for sure HM. The front letter is tough.

NHM if the front letter is stylized with long tail.
