In 1947 the right wing Afrikaner Nationalists Party started to disassociate themselves from the British monarchy. In 1952, the title of South African Navy vessels HMSAS (His Majesty's South African Ship) had been changed to SAS (South African Ship).

In 1957, the Crown had been removed from the badges of the defence force and police.

Hence, your nice looking (KC) badge is, at least, pre 1957. I do not know of a QC cap badge ever being issued.
