Two slightly different versions of the other ranks cap/collar badge. I am yet to see one on a slider I am 100% confident about but don't see why they should not exist.

Note... In this pic the collar badges seem to be about 3/4 the size of the cap badge.

Kipling and King list two badges for the Bedfordshire Imperial Yeomanry. One, a description only which sounds the same as the later badge in brass. And the other [illustrated] which is narrower and in w/m.

 

K and K show two badges for The Bedfordshire Yeomanry. One brass or g/m the other bi/m. I am yet to see a good bi/m badge.

 

After amalgamation with the Hertfordshire Yeomanry in 1961, Bedfordshire collars were worn in gold a/a and sp/g for officers. This makes it difficult to tell if the officers badge is from an early or later period.

A 'pair' of officers embroidered bullion collar badges that are not quite the same.

An OSD badge polished for wear on khaki drill.

Another OSD badge that has been converted to screw back for some reason.
