    Ok, so its about 1950s? I guess these are fairly common items? Sort of like a general service cap badge? This came mixed in with a bunch of British badges and did'nt really give it much thought

    This type of cap badge was used by the royal greek army in major conflicts during world war i, the balkan wars, world war ii and the turkish invasion of cyprus. It remained in use until late 1974 and was abolished with the downfall of the military junta in greece and the final abolishion of royalty.

    You're welcome! That said it is near impossible to date your badge. I don't know if the catches are saying anything about that but i've seen many variations so i can't help you more...
