I believe what you have there Leigh is a badge made from a cast of an OSD badge. You can see the scars on the reverse from the blade on the original badge used to create the mould. Note how it’s lost...

Tantalising your timing co-insides with a similar badge selling on eBay recently for £26.04. It was not in my opinion a genuine WW2 badge, but I’m no expert.
