Default Unknown badge possibly not military

This badge may not be military but I would still like to identify it if possible. I think that we can rule out Vatican Air Force.

Thank you both for your help with the identification. Newport, Gwent fits perfectly as the badge was amongst the effects of the Probyn's Horse officer who came from just outside Newport.
