To me it looks like a Frontiersman with a long rifle.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts, but I’m pulling the pin on this one.... not enough factual evidence to continue with this.
If something comes to light, then you’ll hear it here. beer
But wait!!
I’ve just come up with this.... a London firefighter holding a hose. Looks promising.

Well, after a bit more digging, I’m convinced this is was a badge worn by a firefighter belonging to the Protector Fire Insurance Company, London.... who attended fires of their insured clients with the same “Fire Mark” attached to their buildings.

Fascinating historical research and credit goes to DB over at AMDRH forum. clap

The stylised flames near the end of the hose are quite obvious under a loupe
