Default Unknown ships wheel, crossed rifles badge

Hi
Does anyone recognise this badge ? I have a vague memory from years ago of someone talking about a maritime security force but it never came to fruition.
Itís only a few centimetres long.

Scroll says ď Northern ď if you canít read it

Looks like Northern Cyclists related to me. The 'Northern' scroll - not found on cap badge - suggests a sweetheart or mufti wear perhaps.

Some good images in this link

It looks like a Northern Cyclist Battalion brooch to me. Either a sweetheart brooch or an old comrades lapel badge.
