Default IS THIS CAP BADGE AN EARLY KOYLI BADGE.

Can anyone help me with the identification of this badge, I know it is an early
badge possibly pre 1881,
It does look like it could be a koyli badge but I am not sure because the word
yorkshire along the botton ot the bugle. I have looked in the Kipling and King book volume 1, and have not yet found it. any help will really be apreciated.
regards Andy.

Hi Andy,
It looks like someone has stuck a rose into an old KOYLI shoulder title to me, it states in Churchill this was part of the title worn on tropical kit, don't know what was worn with it though !! Hope this helps,
Wilf.
P.S There's one in my Boer War Album.
