Default Help needed identifying CPS armband

Hi members
Can anyone please identify this CPS armband? It may be related to the South African Civilian Protection Services or Civilian Guard, although the Civilian Guard had blue and white armbands. Maybe related to the CPS Medical Services, or otherwise British?
Regards
Lefty (Cape Town)

Civil Protection Services. SA Home Guard/Civil Defence. Don't think its British.

Thanks, Dave. As far as I know, the CPS armbands had CPS - CG written in white on a blue armband. I have not seen this one before.

Just a minor correction, it is the Civilian Protective Services
