    so I picked up this what seems to be a cap badge (they have the sliders at the back) but I have no idea what from as I’ve never seen it. Anybody know.

    Perhaps from part of a pair worn on the uniform around the 1800’s.

    Example from that era,

    Reproduction Royal Marine other ranks' cross-belt plate, circa 1805.

    I believe they are for the white pouches worn by Musicians in the Royal Marines Band Service.
    The use of the kings crown however suggests the badge is quite old. Screenshot_20180602-163358_Samsung Internet.jpg

    Funnily enough I was on the Victory a week ago having a pint. Don't remember much about it. The ship, not the pub.
