Hello Trev

There were several regiments that used the castle motif.
The Suffolk's,  Essex , Northampton's  , Dorset's and the Inniskillings I believe, but I think the Inniskillings had a flag on the turret. I have an idea that the badge you posted is attributed to the Devonshire regiment. In my humble opinion, the enamel colours of the white and green may represent the county flag of Devon....just a suggestion. I may have got it completely wrong.

Dave.....

Hi Dave,

Thanks for responding, you know a lot more about British Regiments than I do and your suggestion about the white and green for Devon may just have some merit yet.
