I picked up a brass cap badge at a flea market but have no idea what it is. I'm guessing British: It's got a lion, standing on the crown, which sits on top of a globe. The globe shows a map of Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia, and it look like the names of the continents were cast into it. The globe is surrounded by a wreath. It's about 4 cm across and 4.5 cm high. Any idea what unit it's for?

Sounds like Royal Marines.
