No idea at all what SEC might stand for. A bugle badge like this usually indicates a Rifle Vols regiment anywhere in the British Empire after 1860 and were made in a variety of sizes and die variations.
Does the badge in the photo have a QVC?
Really fascinating to see the cap badge facing to the right because one of these was illustrated in Grebert's book on pre-federation Australian colonial badges, described as Melbourne Rifles 1864. I do have a facing pair.
An oxidised king's crown version was sold recently on Ebay.
I would be interested in any comments on the attached scans.
