Default WW1 University of London OTC Collar Badge Question

From online research carried out so far I understand that the University of London OTC comprised 950 Students at the start of World War One divided into an Artillery Section, a Battalion of Infantry, a Company of Engineers and a Medical Section.

Could anyone tell me if each of these sub Units would have worn the same collar badge if any or would they have worn a badge that indicated their specific function ie Artillery affiliated, Engineers etc.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Regards Simon.

Simon, the Artillery and Engineer elements would appear to have worn the small plain g.s. grenades on the collars. A photo can be found in the uniforms section on the GWF, I think it's under "Postcards".
