Default Headdresses For Inspection

I have a couple of Royal Engineers headdresses here for scrutiny. I would be very grateful if members are able to put a date to them. All comments very welcome.

(Further photos of the RE OSD cap badge can be seen HERE)

With thanks,

Judging from the badges and buttons 1937-1952. OSD bronze badges were discontinued in 1949.

Rgds, Thomas.

Oh dear Simon, perhaps a very sizeable percentage of badges in my collection have completely deceived me and I should at least consider throwing them away?
