Default Identification help required on CYC button please: Yeomanry or Yacht?

Hello. I have a string of these buttons, some with a more angular "QVC" style St Edward's Crown than this. I'm wondering if there was a Colonial Yeomanry Cavalry or Corps or possibly if it could even be a pre-1890s Corinthian Yacht Club button (before it got the royal suffix). Any help or ideas would be very welcome. I'll be keeping one for the collection and listing the rest at some stage. Thanks

Hi there,

The buttons are for the Castlemartin Yeomanry Cavalry (Pembrokeshire).

Too slow - shouldn't have made a cup of tea whilst typing the reply.

Cheers

Ian

Fantastic, many thanks both. I don't think I would have ever got there!
