Default Coloured F.S.C. Leicestershire Regt?

I cannot find an exact match for this cap. The dark blue and grey are reminiscent of the cap worn by the Leicestershire Regiment but they did not have yellow piping. Was it added when they became the Royal Leicestershire Regiment or am I barking up the wrong tree?

The colours are similar to those of the Stable Belt worn by the Army Catering Corps
