Default Enamel Lapel Badge 'Be Matey'-Military or Not

Can anyone identify what if any (military?) organisation this lapel badge might belong to?

A search of the internet has not revealed any clues.

Many thanks

Mark

Maybe we’re not interpreting it quite correctly and it’s supposed to be pronounced in pirate phonetics.

So ‘AAAAAAAAAA-GH BE MATEY’

It’s a quirky thing as they’d say on Bargain Hunt. I like it. Good luck in your quest Mark.

It IS the Anonymous Association, so there is no membership list. When you show up at the secret meetings, everybody signs in with an 'R'. That's like an 'X', but for pirates.
