Default Quick Middlesex Quiz

A early teatime teaser for the forum.

Can the savvy eyed out there spot why I think this Middlesex Regiment badge is a little bit special?

All I’ll give away for now is to confirm that it is looped E-W.

VB or other designations (despite "Albuhera" scroll) removed from tails of scroll, either from badge or die??
Is it blackened?

What's going on with those tails, Initials, hallmarks?
Badge off a tin lid?
