Default Warwickshire Yeomanry puzzle

Hi All,
Here is a large Bear and Ragged Staff badge, possibly silver.
It is the same size and pattern as pictured in Cox, Fig.1275.
Because of the pin back it would not be a pouch badge but was it ever worn on the hat or sleeve?
Comments welcome.
Thanks, John

Could it be a Warwickshire girl guides badge? (Though the only ones of those I've seem are solid strikes with the vertical brooch fitting).

Hi Leigh,
A possibility. Do you have images of a Guide badge for comparison?
Thanks,
John

I have a Girl Guides badge (identified as such on this forum) but not to hand. It is different to yours in that it's solid struck, and I don't know how the sizes would compare.

Hi Leigh,
Is this the thread you are referring to?

https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ht=Girl+Guides

That badge has a scroll.

Cheers, John

Yes, that's the one - I've been searching for the thread but hadn't found it.

Apologies just checked my notes and need to correct myself.

It’s another different ‘hunchback’ bear I’ve got in my notes for the Warks GGs with scroll removed. It too lacks the leaning leg too like the example in the link.

Type in haste repent at leisure as they say.

Possibly a sergeant's arm badge?

On the Regimental Badges web site, there is this same badge for sale as a Sergeant's arm badge.

Thanks for your inputs CB, and Phil.
Hopefully mine is also a Sergeant's badge.
Cheers, John
