Default Isle of Man Cap or Collar

Can anyone provide information on the following badge: Is it a cap badge or collar dog?

It is my understanding that the KC version was worn as a cap badge, but the QC version is used as a collar badge?

This badge is a "general" badge which was worn by a number of uniformed organisations on the Island. The Prison Service used it as a cap badge. The police primarily wore it as a collar (and later) epaulette badge. However, it was worn as a cap badge by some Special Constables and by police cadets. I hope this is helpful. The QC version is not worn as a collar badge, but is worn on the epaulette above the force number. A smaller version is worn on the lapel of the tunic.

Dave.
