Default Military Badge

Please see photos of a badge I'm trying to ID. It's a Kings Crown so 1901 to 1953, but having looked in Kipling and King Vol 1 the closest I can find is the top half of a QVC Royal Artillery badge. It is unusual in having long fronds (?) next to the helmet.
Any ideas?
I'll try to attach photos from orig text message next, showing badge.

I have a WM and enamel one of these, very well made, but I also doubt whether it is military. Pehaps someone knows just why they were made.

Looks like a "By Royal Appointment" item. Probably fell off a wheelbarrow.

Its the Royal Arms allowed to be added to any product by a manufacturer or retailer who had a Royal Appointment. They can be transfer printed, cloth, on china etc etc and even as stated a wheelbarrow, or a tin of biscuits.

Nothing to do with the military and was originally attached to a product of some sort like a tin of posh biscuits.

regards

That would certainly be quite some tin, perhaps an indication of the quality of it's contents!
