Question Anyone know what this represents?

I thought I knew what this belongs to when I bought it but now I’m not so sure. Anyone have any ideas what the badge represents?

Yep. That's the cap badge I wore in what was by then Manchester & Salford University OTC, and the background colours match the university "general" tie (i.e. not faculty specific).

This looks like the chromed cap badge part of Gaunt car badge to the Royal Horse Guards?
