Yes, you are right that Paymasters were disestablished for a time in the late 19th C, but I too cannot recall the dates of that period. I am simply at a loss to think what other appointment it might be given the odd badge, unless it is indeed the Colonel still wearing a collar badge in his FSC, which would be unusual given the need for him to set an example.
