Default Help needed

Would some one kindly shed some light on this badge? My first thought would be Royal Navy!

Could this be an unfinished naval officers hat badge prior to adding the anchor and padding

Definitely not Royal Navy. I think it is an unfinished HM Customs cap badge.
Cheers,
Alex

I agree with Alex. It looks like an unfinished example of the cap badges worn by Preventive Officers in H.M. Waterguard - now part of H.M. Customs and Excise.

I've attached some images as examples for comparison.

Hello guys,

Well it isn't an Army Fleet Maritime badge, as I thought, the crown is too high on the wreath.
But worth looking into, ....
