This one is a 1937 pattern EGA, seen up through the KW era. It was one of the more popular styles during WW2.

And the same with this one. Same pattern, two different insignia manufacturers. They are nice examples.

Probably the WW2 era or immediately after. Officer insignia was private purchase so a lot of those guys continued wearing the older patterns.

I'd say WWII production for both, Sterling service emblems was an economy wartime measure mid-late WWII
