Default Unknown 'musician' cap badge, victoria crown

Gents, if anyone has a clue to whom this badge may attributed, I'd be grateful. I suspect its a generic 'band' badge and potentially not military at all. Any light that can be shed, would help.

Thanks chaps

Bess

I would say a generic badge worn by military style, but not military, town and colliery brass and silver bands. Also exists as a King’s Crown version.

The British legion used this style of generic badge (silver, chrome, white metal)
also.
