Default 3rd VB PWO West Yorkshire Regiment Officer's Pouch Badge?

Hello All

I picked up the badge pictured below recently but would like to confirm that it is what I think it is and that it is genuine. I believe it is a silvered officer's pouch badge for the 3rd VB PWO West Yorkshire Regiment. It is approx 4 inches tall and has 4 screw post fittings to the rear, only 3 securing nuts though. There is a back plate that is maker marked Hobson & Sons, Lexington St, London W and it has the Roman numerals IV on the other side. If the badge is right then I will most likely be moving it on if anyone is interested.

It’s not a pouch badge though, it’s a Pouch Belt badge. Very nice

Best wishes
