Thanks all
Still no definitive ID.
I know Waratahs don't sound right to everyone outside of Australia however if in Australia especially NSW they do make sense

The C&T one, which also had a waist belt clasp in the lot, hammered for 140.

Sorry don't have the prices realised for the early Bosley sales.

For what its worth I think the PBP in the opening post is a generic one probably used by many RVC's without their own insignia and is not unique to the 46th MRVC.

Auction houses often give an unknown generic badge an attributation as it sells better.
