Default Unknown AA bugle horn with 2 to centre

Hi all,

I am struggling with this one and shouldn't really so here we go. It is a bugle horn badge with numerical 2 to the centre of the bugle strings measuring 32x33mm with two square lugs N-S. The bugle ribbon/cords meet in a square knot.

My first thoughts were perhaps 2nd Battalion Light infantry or The Rifles collar as just a plain bugle horn badge was worn as the cap badge? But then I have a smaller badge that is just the bugle horn measuring 27x28mm with a single central lug which I presume was a collar (right hand badge of third image pane next to a rounded knot collar unit also unknown). So is the bugle 2 badge a cap badge and not a collar and which unit?

Confused and so seeking help.

cheers Dean

The bugle with the 2 ,I haven't a clue. The ribboned horn would appear to be an li collar,it came in two sizes.one for no.1 dress and the otier for no.2 dress. The corded bugle could be an ox and bucks collar or an rgj buglers trade badge.

Unless my eyes are giving up that '2 in the bugle' looks to be sand cast.

The Bugle badge with a '2' looks like a what I think is a M. Azam & Sons unofficial commission.

Thanks to all for comments on bugle 2 badge - the AA is rough and does on inspection look cruder than other AA badges I have and could well be cast.

Many thanks Ddan.
