Default Help with identification please

Would anyone know what badge this is please? I bought it at a vintage market and liked it really for the bee! However I’m really curious to find out if this is a military badge of some sort? Hopefully you knowledgeable lot can enlighten me?

Thanks in advance.

I don't believe that it is military. Whilst the rose is common enough as a military device the bee is too frivolous for an army badge.

Could it be a Yorkshire rose with a Manchester bee?
