Not Military but a Scottish Clan Badge of some description I would think.

Tried to look through Clan Badges on line but couldn't find a match, with a bit of patience you should find it.

 

All the best Simon

Clan Buchan? The crest with the sunflower as well as the motto seems to fit.

The odd looking hat from which the flower issues is a heraldic 'chapeau' - an ermine trimmed red cap - and, in theory at least, part of the arms of a peer of the realm.  The Black Prince had the crest on his arms issuing from one.  Not sure that is a huge help except perhaps that it might indicate that the arms are those of the head of Clan Buchanan and not simply a badge for any member of that clan?

The chapeau is technically a 'cap of maintenance' and  latterly signifies gentry rather than  the rank of peer. My g.grandfather, of comparively humble stock, was granted one in his coat of arms  by the Lord Lyon in 1912
