Default Puggaree Flash for ID, Please.

Would somebody be able to ID this puggaree flash, please? The inscription on the reverse reads:

'Cpl Boyd, MG Coy'.





With thanks,

JT

From some old notes I made in the Suffolk Regiment Museum this conforms to their flash of a yellow castle (as per the centre of the cap badge) on a khaki square.
