Does anybody know anything about the Bombay Volunteer Rifles? A friends family seems to have been involved but they have no details.

There's this:-
This seems to be the normal capbadge, but as you can see from the link above, they had a Scottish cadet company.

It's a WW1 era glengarry badge for the Highland Company of the BVRC (one of several rifle corps to use this abbreviation) - an auxiliary drinking club of white and Eurasian members. ISTR they were known unofficially as the Bombay Scottish.
