Yes I agree. I will blow an image up in a minute of the hat

I meant to post last night but I actually got totally side tracked looking at all the images and then ventured off to looking at mug-shots from Australia and America (as you do)

Top Badge is for the City of London.

Bottom is for the Metropolitan Police.

It's not City of London Police.

I have this photo hanging up in my home. The guy who sold it to me specialises in archive photos of the police.
