Default WW1- Rifle Bde and Post Office Rifles cap badge differences


Please could anyone help with the following query:

Is it possible to tell the difference between a Rifle Brigade and an 8th London cap badge in old photographs- In other words, are there any telltale differences?

For example, I think the Rifle Brigade cap badge had more battle honours, but a quick google image search seems to me to show that this was not always the case. Not being very knowledgeable about such things, I thought I'd ask.

My reason for asking is that I have just got a postcard labelled as "possibly 13th Rifle Brigade", but I wondered if another possibility wasn't the 8th London Rgt, Post Office Rifles, in 1918. See attached.

Many thanks in advance,
