Default Large Anodised Crown

Do any members have any thoughts on by who and where the large crown badge shown below would be worn.

For scale I've shown it next to what I believe are two 'civilian employee' crown badges - one on a Smith and Wright slider and the other being F&S on lugs.

Note that both the large crown badge and the smaller F&S civilian employee badge on lugs have 5 'stones' shaped like a quincunx between the large jewels. Perhaps indicating that the large badge in also of Firmin manufacture.

Is it not the badge of rank worn on a wrist band by a WO2?
Also worn on No2 Dress by some Household Division and Cavalry Regiments.

Hi Tim
It is 4cm by 4cm. My initial thoughts were that was too big for a WO2 badge, but perhaps I've just got skinny wrists.

On further reflection and a bit of size comparison with another I have to admit you are absolutely spot on and perhaps I need to spend more time in the gym.

Thanks for for putting me right.

The big one is the WO2 rank badge. The smaller lugged crown could be the Staff Sgt crown worn by the Cavalry or the Household Cavalry arm badge.
