Default Thoughts on Cameron Highlanders Badges

All,

What are your thoughts on the small collection of Cameron Hldrs Badges. I believe that the look ok but always on a learning curve.

No one seems to know just what the top left brass badges were for. I have read of many theories, but nothing conclusive as far as I know. The top right looks to be a possible restrike. Bottom right looks good.
As for the bottom right badge, I have never seen one like that before.

Thanks for your input, looking more at the top right I would agree, the other three look to be well struck with good fittings.
