From consulting the late Professor Charles Thomas collection auction, I understand this item was also worn as a beret badge, but happy to be corrected. See:

A die struck brass metal cap badge with original slider to the reverse. A good strong badge with reinforcing bar to back of crown. Sharp detail and in very good condition.
The design is based upon the seal of the Royal Burgh of Lanark that of a double headed eagle grasping a bell in its right claw with a king 's crown above and a scroll " Lanarkshire Yeomanry " below. In 1953, according to Gaylor, it was decided to discard the scroll. There was no QEII version and in 1956 the Regiment was merged with two other lowland units to form the Queen 's Own Lowland Yeomanry.

Die struck cap badge with two original loops to the reverse. Polishing to highpoints especially the battle honours and crown. The Inns of Court Officer Training Corps ( Territorial ) Regiment was part of the London Regiment. They were a yeomanry unit.
The unit was styled as The Innis of Court OTC in 1909 after only a year as the 27th London Regiment. In 1932 the 'OTC' part of their title was discarded and they became The Inns of Court Regiment.
