Default Badges from a collection . . !

Forum members, I have recently bought a collection of British cap badges, apart from the Belgian Engineers which were I'D' in an earlier post there are quite a few that are spare, some I am not too sure about so I will offer them up for your comments:-

Cranleigh CCF G/M

MG section RND this badge has been faked to death, but opinions are welcome.

Royal Sussex Regt, white metal with blue enamel in circlet, not a badge I have ever seen before.

Thanks for your thoughts . . !

Cranleigh CCF is a Marsh fake. The scroll is wrong in shape.

RND is also a fake and I don't like the Sussez either.

The Machine Gun RND isn't put together in away that I would expect of a period piece. However, if you are going to "trash" it, Please let me know as I would be keen to acquire it for my research.
