It seems to be an officers service dress (OSD) bronze collar badge.  Unlike the men’s, the officers insignia was in subdued tones as a form of camouflage.  Officially the men were supposed to cease cleaning theirs so that they naturally toned down over a few weeks in the trenches.

The motorcycle section wore bespoke, plastron fronted jackets that were unique.  The regiment was raised by a very eccentric Welshman indeed.
