Default hi all any idea what this badge is? white metal (45mm), two screw fittings on reverse

hi all
what do you think of this badge?
cast, but well made. definitely military but what period? Boer war or WW1.
doubt its later than that
2 boer war type wire lugs to the rear. the ones always found on the shoulder titles.

cheers

No idea, but interesting. The giant mouse and the big chicken suggest it might be Australian.
