Question Light Infantry badges

I am currently re-carding my Ox & Bucks L.I. and wonder whether these badges fit into this category

First badge a bullion bugle.

Second badge a white metal bugle, the loops are black.

Many thanks for your thoughts.

Rob

Based on the premise that all OBLI bugles are corded, neither of these two would be OBLI.

The first one is a Light Infantry Bugler's arm badge worn anytime from approx. 1958 until circa 2007, the second one , although I don't know what it is, is considerably earlier

Just went through Churchill's, couldn't see a match. A couple of close, but no coconuts.
Closest in design was a KSLI but with the KSLI lettering and in gilding metal.

Rob,

The second badge is a generic Rifle Volunteer /V.B. badge, an example of which I have on a field service cap attributed to one of the Lancashire Rifle Volunteers.

Nice to get an ID (is it in Churchill's).
There are a number of similar in Churchill's, I have wondered whether some of those shown as attributed to specific units are actually what they're supposed to be or just fit the bill as small strung bugles etc.
I've still not identified this roughly similar design albeit of blackened yellow metal.

Default Bugles

Thanks guys for your thoughts on these badges, the buglers arm badge is modern, but the other a generic item worn or could have been worn by a number of units, both will not be on the Ox & bucks board.
