Default Battle For Hong Kong/ Royal Scots Badge

Found this Royal Scots Cap Badge on Golden Hill in Hong Kong. It was right on a main walking trail about 8 inches deep and people have been walking on it for 70 years. if only it could tell me how it got there....
we have also been finding many .303 brit cartridges? a few live, blanks, a 45 ACP, some 30-06, sone kind of rim-fire about 25 caliber and one 12 gauge ball.
I am still hoping to find a Japanese Sword. there is Tons of war stuff still in the ground here.

Interesting finds.

"R P 42" is Remington-Peters and 42 indicates date of 1942 made for the US military.
"WRA co" is Winchester Repeating Arms.

Both look like .45 ACP with was common US Army issue for the M1911 Colt pistol.
