Default Reserve Regt Royal Irish Fusiliers

I have the following badges on approval and have grave doubts about them and would appreciate your opinions please. This one I show against a genuine OR's (on the left) and it is very different and not so well made despite the Gaunt label. I was hoping it was an officers being so different but am unconvinced. Any comments appreciated.
Denis

The badge on the right. Looks to have been made from different badges, cobbled together.

I agree with Simon. Badge on the left is a Frankenstein.

To my eyes the broached badge has 8 flames and the other 9. Which is correct?
