Troops badge

I have never been sure of what role the Local Troops performed. I suspect they may have been "on call", something like our Reserves or National Guard, but I have never read anything authoritative about them.

This is my example of an officer's version of the 100-Year Jubilee Badge of Local Troops. On this version you can see the red enamel and that the wreath and crown portion is silver-plated bronze. I can see traces of gilt on the eagle, so it was once golden, making this a very striking badge, indeed. The letters MB appear to be solid gold. This badge has no proof or hallmarks.
