I can't identify it but it's not the crown of Victoria but could be Edward VII.
It looks more civil than military.

Thanks.  Latest hint received is that it may be a Danish dannebrog cross, and be related to medical services in some way.

The ribbon of the dannebrog cross is white with red borders.
So it's not that one ???

Ribbon doesn't match anything on this site:

Could be Danish Red Cross Badge of Honour?
