Unknown regimental badge

Article about: I picked up this sweetheart broach this morning, but I haven't managed to identify it from any of my reference books. It's quite unusual in having a motto in Greek. Any thoughts? Many thanks

    I picked up this sweetheart broach this morning, but I haven't managed to identify it from any of my reference books. It's quite unusual in having a motto in Greek. Any thoughts?

    Sorry, for some reason every so often when I upload pictures from my IPad it flips them. No idea why!

    I have not got a clue..... it looks like a yorkshire or lancashire regiment badge from the rose though. I will pull out my grandad's old british badges book.

    It is similar to the Derbyshire yeomanry which has a rose within a wreath, but the text is different. The Intel corps use a rose within a wreath as well, but a different wreath and obviously it says intel corps at the bottom.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Here it is, very similar in terms of the design and the shape of the wreath, but very different in the text.

    And the intel corps, which is very different in the type of wreath and of course the text is not all greek to me.

    Thanks for the replys chaps, I'm afraid this one has me stumped. I've a mate at my RNR unit who is part Greek so I'm going to see if he can translate the text and see if that helps
