Is this Badge correct?

I took this picture in Melcombe Regis Cemetery. Is this the correct badge for 24th London, known as The Queens or is this The Queen's Royal West Surry used in error.

OK - the 24th were badged as Queen's, and latterly (I believe) became a fully-accredited Territorial Battalion of the regiment.

I have a picture of a SNCO of the 24th Londons, taken in dress uniform in 1914. The caption says that the badges and uniform are those of the West Surrey Regt. As they both have "Queens" in their titles there may have been some regimental affiliation.

Thank you both. I did not want to put it in my badge collection if it was in error. Peter
