BC, from the book Scarlet and Tartan, by Martin J Buckley, your first badge is described as the glengarry badge of 1935 to early 1960s. The other one may be a cross belt badge, although it looks to be bent for wear on the glengarry.

My observation is that the pre-war badges were flat and post war slightly curved.
