Hi, the eagle looks quite Polish? Might be a good place to at least start.

Cheers, Tim

It is a Polish Regimental badge. Go to this website and look at the frame - your badge is there. They can most probably identify it for you.

Hello, what you have here is Poland's 24th UŁan Regiment, circa 1920s.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish...Uhlan_Regiment

N.B.; Uhlan is the german spelling. UŁan is the polish spelling

It's 24th Uhlans (Lancers) Regiment badge but from Polish Army in Exile. The unit was a part of 1st Armoured Division ("Black devils").
This badge for ORs was made in Germany during occupational duty between 1945-1947.
