Default Unknown Brass M.R.A./D Brass Shoulder Title

Good Afternoon,

I recently acquired a large collection of almost exclusively CEF collar badges. Hidden away in that consignment was a 'mystery' shoulder title, images of which are shown here. It looks like it has been produced 'in the field' - note the attachments on the reverse that presumably served as lugs, along with the rubber washer that was used to retain the shoulder title in place on the uniform.

I have been led to believe this may be a South African Artillery shoulder title, hence the reason for placing this thread in the S. African section.

Does anyone have any knowledge of such a shoulder title being used by any S. African unit and, if so, which unit and when would it have been worn?

This is not an area that I collect so I may well consider moving it on if it can be established it has any 'kosher' military connection.

Many thanks in advance for any information that can be provided.
