Default Buckinghamshire T.A battalion

I recently purchased a small lot at auction to obtain a Woodward B,ham marked slider I have 2 Q/C badges sliders marked Gaunt London and Gaunt Birmingham I would suspect that the B'Ham is out of period . Westlake in his book The Territorial Battalions stops 1947 when converted to R.A I would be grateful for any information on these Q/C badgeS -K.K 2391

There was a factory blackened a/a Q/C version made by Gaunt Bham for the CCF. The metal version may have been worn by the cadets but unfortunately has been so widely reproduced that any q/c metal badge must be viewed with suspicion.
