Three Lugs on Cap Badge

Here is another one - I've never seen a cap badge that has three lugs at the East, West and North....I thought I would go this way in lieu of N, E, W. Although, this is "NEW" to me.

Royal Engineers Pagri?

Has anyone seen this one before. Looks to be locally made (sand cast). There is a very weak "London" stamp on the top right side of pin; a possible hint that something may not be correct.

Thanks,...
