Possibly a sports badge. Bears some similarity to this one:

It does indeed, the size seems to indicate a tracksuit or PT vest badge but the fabric and construction wouldn't handle any rough wear or laundering.
For some reason I was considering WRAC, ACC, RAMC, RN, RM, Junior Soldiers, but I really havnt a clue on this one.

Don't think so, it's a bit big (about 4 1/4 inches in diameter).

A RQMS badge is a crown in a wreath, not the Royal Crest. Regards

I have some of similar construction but just a red crown on white and royal crest with letter below in blue on white. Posted them in this link some time back and still not identified.
