They are Territorials, wearing the "On Imperial Service" badge issued when they had signed the "Imperial Service Obligation".

Cheers Chris, did this mean they had waived thier right to Home Service only or was Imperial Service a general terminology?

Until war caused changes, the obligation was never beyond serving overseas with the unit if 80% of the unit had undertaken that obligation.

There was absolutely no remuneration, just a handsome badge, a 'tablet' technically.
