Default Bm 556 Brass Titles ?? Any ideas ??

As the title states, anyone got any ideas what these titles might be ? Don't think that they are military but happy to be informed otherwise !

Will be for disposal once identified.

Thank in advance

Possibly but I think the Corps of Commissionaires wore a different pattern.

Set for sale on eBay with details of original Corps member who wore them.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corps-of-...-/274116671085

Same seller also has set # 557 ! - "Unfortunately the number was apparently only issued in 1968 "

Two different sizes were worn by the CoC. Bm are the most commonly found examples, followed by lone numbers without letters (London HQ).
