Smile Victoria & St George's Rifles cord boss badge

Hi all,

This one is a little odd. It is only 27x18mm and is blackened GM with long wire threads pushed through a strip of leather for safe keeping of the wires I suspect rather than from a document holder etc. At first I thought it was a collar to the 9th London's Queen Victoria's Rifles but then I saw that the title strap read Victoria & St George's which didn't fit with what was in Churchill's book or a pair Keith Blakeman has for sale.

So searched some threads and didn't fit with cord boss badge of QVR but I found the reference to the precedent unit.

1st Middlesex (Victoria and St George’s) Volunteer Rifle Corps (previously 4th Volunteer Battalion, King's Royal Rifle Corps (KRRC). With a SA 1900-02 honour.

So that is a new one for me, cheers Dean.

Hurried photos, but here it is - same badge.
Well, it would be if it wasn't laying on it's side refusing to stand up straight.
