Default Ayr Yeomanry?

Trying to identify this badge. Nearest I can find is Ayr Yeomanry but somebody will know I'm sure.
Cheers
John

Polish, WWII, worn on the black beret by armoured troops (can't remember the details).

Thanks both. Yes it does look like a Polish eagle, I have seen metal cap badges of the same shape but did not connect the two. I will try and identify further.
Cheers

Leigh has nailed it. I don't think it can be identified further.

It's possible that the badge can be attributed to a particular manufacturer or country of manufacture by its construction.

The crown on the eagle's head was ditched shortly after the war so it is likely of wartime British manufacture.

It is a nice variation, most were embroidered on felt.

The one I have (came with an "AB64") is embroidered on felt, these I believe were made in the UK. I think I only have one of the Khaki versions, and that it's of this construction.
I believe these different styles of manufacture indicate made in UK, Tietz in Tel Aviv, Germany etc.
