    Can anyone please tell me if this is WW1 or WW2? My guess is WW2 but not sure.

    Many thanks

    Yep, WW2 - as the First World War version was brass (technically, gilding metal), with a fuller flame, the WW2 version got all fancy and became bimetal after the war.

    Is there a distinction in that the badges with silver centre were for Senior Ranks / Officers?

    I was told this but am not sure.

    Yep, ORs would have brass (gilding metal) and so-called white metal, with officers wearing bronze finish in the field, and gilt and silver otherwise.

    Cheers
