Default Royal Artillery cap find at flea market

I picked this up at a Northern California flea market this morning. Based on the buttons and the seven grenade flames I'm assuming this is a Royal Artillery dress cap for probably an officer. There are no labels so I'm guessing a private purchase item. How do you date a cap like this? Is it a WW2 era cap?

It could be WW2 but just as likely 1946 - 1952 era.
