Unknown Navy Cap Badge

Recommended Posts

Does anyone recognize this navy cap badge, presumably European? A fellow collector received it recently and we can't find any information about it.
I wasn't sure in which category to put it but since the most monarchies are located in the northern part of the Old Continent this seemed like the best option. 
All comments are more than welcome.

Hello , Three Monarchies remains in northern Europe , the Swedish ,the Danish and the Norwegian , all the three with Navies .the badge posted could be of the Swedish Navy (Svenska Flottan ). of the Danish No because the Danes wear a Navy badge with oak leaves and not laurel ones . apart the anchor is carried over a oval cockade red white. Norwegian Navy is another option . Great Britain No , the crown of the Royal Navy is quite  distinct. some else : It looks as a badge for use on berets or a baseball cap

Bayern, thank you for your prompt reply. So we can definitely exclude Denmark, what about Netherlands and Belgium? 
I forgot to mention its size - 5,5x5,5 cm.

Hello JohanH : If you excludes the Swedish Navy , excluded the Belgian , remain the Dutch navy . A question ,the cap badge of the Navy includes the three crowns ?

Definately not Dutch Navy. Regarding the poor quality (yellow cotton in stead of bullion) I think it is some fashion item, not an official cab badge of a serious Navy.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
