Default RAF Officer three-piece metal cap badge

For your kind attention, of what period and purpose would this three piece officer cap badge be from? It measures 68 mm high X 55 mm wide (outer dimensions of the black backing). One tends to find, I believe, the embroidered badge with metal eagle in greater use. Thank you.

with kindest regards to all,

Tim

I believe this to be an Australian (from style of eagle) version of an economy badge from WWII era.

Ahah! It is quite different from the other economy versions that I have that I know to be British and Canadian. What you say makes perfect sense. Thank you very much.

with best regards,

Tim
