Default Details of an Officer needed

Im trying to find some service details on :-
Lt Col R.N or K.N Bruce.
He could be a TA Officer or possibly KRRC or Rifle Brigade. The one detail i do know is that he was CO of the 12th London or The Rangers.

That could well be the man Leigh. That would seem to indicate he was a TA Officer rather than a Regular.

I did Luke,im still trying to find out what the pouch badge is though still.
The reason i asked specifically about Lt Col Bruce was that there is one in a display that the Rifles Museum holds and it was his own plate which he donated to the museum.
