Default Bronze ASC with slider?

All,
I have had this Ally Sloper's Cavalry badge for quite some time now and have always been a bit puzzled by it.
It appears to be and OR die struck issue, but is bronzed as an OSD.
What is it?
Thanks much,

CB

I have a RAOC 1918 Pattern Cap Badge with Slider which has been bronzed, and I am informed that the WWI & WWII Officers Shops (ran by Ordnance) had a range of regimental badges bronzed for Field Commissioned Officers and that Ordnance & Service Corps Workshops did them as well, possibly for the Officers of their own Corps as well as for the Officers Shop and others? This was also done in India & the Far East because supply times for such items were long.

I agree, I have a couple of OR badges 'converted' into OSD badges.

Thanks,
I must say that this is the first time I have heard of such "converted" to OSD badges.
I have to wonder just what the process was that workshops were able to bronze such badges. Additionally, could this have been done to a bi-metal badge as well?
