This badge is a generic Scottish design (like the thistle and St Andrew) and has been worn right around the empire since Victorian times, and is still in use. I saw a pipe band in Australia last year and they had this badge on their sporrans, obviously bought from a Scottish band supplier and still available.
I also saw it illustrated, without the torse, when researching a now defunct early Australian cadet corps called Cooerwul College.
I have this badge in both brass and WM, and have another WM variety slightly larger. There is a sporran in the Sydney Victoria Barracks museum with the same badge but smaller still.
