Default Pudsey Rifle Club 1914 lapel badge

Recent find form a car Boot sale.
Pudsey Rifle Club 1914 lapel badge, Having trouble finding anything about them.
Presumably one of the many Rifle Clubs at the time and should think they became either Leeds or Bradford Pals at the outbreak of War.
Posting to share, any insights welcome.

This is a VTC badge.

Google Volunteer Training Corps.

Nor part of any Pals unit, but a very nice badge

Believe it or not you couldn't get your head around it today but some of these rifle clubs used to shoot in the pub garden or inside the pub itself.

Perhaps worded Badly, I know the Rifle Clubs weren't Pals Regiments, Quite a few members Joined the local Pals regiments quoting their prowess at the clubs as Prior service.
From info found about Leeds Rifle Clubs, Have struggled to find anything on the Pudsey Club..
