Could the blue Artillery one be a beret badge?

Well It could, but I don't think so. We wore red/scarlet berets - the same colour as RMP. In fact I bought RMP officers berets for my officers to replace their horrid Pakistan made ones. The badge was worn on a very dark navy blue, almost black rectangular patch. This would have been far too pale. Note also the flame from the muzzle is missing.

You may be getting the impression 8 Bty was a very smart set up. You'd be quite right.
