I can only repeat was has been written in the various RA books.

A Gilt grenade for officers and brass for ORs for wear on the Puggaree, c1880 to 1902-1903.

I would expect these to have either a slider (vertical shank) or long brooch pin fitting.

The Officers Gun badge did have a brooch pin.

This one has a vertical pin fitting fitted. It was made that way and not a conversion.
