Default Edinburgh Rifles ?

I recently took a punt on this badge - the seller was listing quite a few badges from the same collection - they were all not particularly well described and poorly photographed - there were some interesting Gurkha items ( see separate post under India) - and they were definitely genuine and on complete impulse I bought this as I thought it might be an interesting "sleeper" - but I'm quite prepared for it to be a fake. But what exactly is it or purports to be? I think its Queen's Edinburgh Rifles Brigade? Pouch badge? Date? Any help gratefully received . Tim

It is supposed to be a pouch belt plate to the Queens City of Edinburgh Rifle Brigade BUT its a brand new badly made fake.

Lots on ebay at the moment
