Default Duty First Badges

Here is a selection of what I call the "Duty First Badges" for want of a better term. They seem to be a modified version of the 91st Bn cap badge. I recently acquired the little collar with the "9" on it as a silver overlay. This is the first collar I have seen in this series. My question is has anyone seen this format before of fixing the numeral on as a stand alone? Does the presence of this little lugged collar mean that there is a matching cap badge out there somewhere?
Thank you
Don

Thanks for posting Don. The 9th is very unusual, even for a Duty First pattern.
