Lightbulb Unknown Badges Part 2

Hi Everyone, Many thanks to everyone that helped with identifying my previous set of badges, I really appreciate the help . This is the last from that batch that I had questions on.

The top left image has two badges which look like New Zealand. 8th (South Canterbury) Mounted Rifles. cap badge. Circa.1914/1918, They seem to be two different badges, would anymore have any more knowledge on them.

Also the second image seems to be a large disc and no markings just wondering what that is.



Regards,
Patrick

First group, 4th badge with grenade and calipers is South African Engineers, 1959-1970, quite common.
7th badge, powder horn I think is the generic one worn on shoulder titles for Light Infantry Regiments.
Second group, 4th badge is I think Royal Military college. Nice Edward VII badge.
Cheers,
Alex

Hello Patrick,

The dragon you have looks to be an unfinished OSD bronze to either the Glamorgan Yeomanry or The Monmouthshire Regiment. Officers of both units wore this pattern badge so hard to say with any certainty which it would be. I have said unfinished as I cannot see that any blade fixings have ever been applied.

Hwyl,
Kevin
