Default Anodised King's African Rifles cap badge

Hi folks

I've had this badge for forty years.......its 'orrible!! It's is a poor cast aluminium gold coloured KC KAR cap badge, I've always assumed it was a fake, but why go to the trouble and not cast it in brass?
Cheers
Sean

Looks very much like those made in Pakistan by M.AZAM and sons. Circa 1970's copies of hundreds of military cap badges - British and otherwise.

Cheers everyone, I think it's one of a batch my dad ordered for me in 1975, if I can find them I'll post a picture just for laughs.
