Officers properly commissioned and trained, but in the "holding pool" of ones not yet selected for a particular unit.

Basically: "I am ready (and willing?) but not yet assigned."

It is an ORs badge also worn by some Volunteer Training corps or by the Labour Corps (who later had their own badge). This is the large pattern - ther is a beret size which was made in WW2.

The "Royal Arms" cap badge in brass does not belong to the General List of Officers theirs was in bronze and as Max7474 has pointed out it was worn by both the Volunteer Force, the Home Guard equivalent of the Great War or the Labour Corps until their new cap badge was taken into wear. Officers of the Volunteer Force and Labour Corps also wore the Royal Arms cap badge in bronze.
