Hi Itchy
The shoulder flash looks like RF, in which case it's the Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment). They have a Museum at the Tower of London. Google "The Fusiliers in London". They may be able to help.

I tend to agree, if you look at the cap, you can see what looks like the Fusiliers Bomb as the cap badge.
