Default WW2 IMC cap badge help needed

Hi,
I recently bought this badge but am unclear about the unit. A website claims it to be an unoffical badge worn by Engineers but if anyone knows anything about this please respond

The badge itself has it quite a thin metal, heavily polished with the bottom title worn away. The top title states I.M.C which I understand to mean Indian Malay Corps

Regards
Nigel

WWII Indian & Malay Corps attached to South African Engineer Corps. Correct it is unofficial and made up in one of the engineering workshops.
