Default Leicestershire & Derbyshire Yeomanry

Good evening,

does it seem possible to find a Leicestershire & Derbyshire Yeomanry cloth beret badge sewn on a square green backing on a dark blue beret ?

Thank you

The Green square is for the "Royal Yeomanry" and the cloth cap badge is the original cap badge for the post 1992 Squadron. I would say that the green square was issued before the Royal Yeomanry new metal cap badge was issued.
