    It is a nice silver collar badge!

      Thanks Chey! Would this be an officers device being it silver? I found some stamped metal ones and they seem to be a little pricey

        Yes indeed most likely an Officers Badge
        Can you take a better photo of the date and maker stamps ?

          I’m thinking Birmingham 1917
          Place of manufacturing and date

          Kind regards Chay

            Looking at it again it could be a cap badge, what is the size of it?

              It might be a collar insignia, it measures approx 33mm wide, here’s a slightly better pic of the silver mark

                Great photo!
                It is indeed a collar badge from Birmingham 1917
                B&P maker is Brent and Parker

                  It may have begun life as a private purchase officer's collar dog, and the prices for those reflect the distinguished conduct of the 43rd throughout the War. However, the remains of the brooch mounting strongly suggest that it was converted to a sweetheart pin at some point. I assume that when manufactured it had loops on the reverse.
