Default 17/21 Officers cap Motto

I have this peaked cap. The holes for the Motto are 1 3/4" apart. None of my Mottos, either officer or ORs have lugs that far apart. Do any of you have ones with lugs that wide? I think Glamorgan Yeomanry had a similar uniform to the 17th, could it be a cap for them?

It would be this motto loop spacing.... 1 and 3/4 inches (4.5cm).

from the pic shown, the cap appears to be WWII or newer.

The pics I have of the glamorgans do not have the white stripe above the band

That would be perfect and make for a lovely cap.

Worth the investment.
