Can anyone help with the badge on the helmet in the picture. It looks like William of Orange and by what I can make out the words are Young followers of William 111.
if anyone can advise me if there are any regimental connections here

the helmet probably belonged to either an Northern Irish loyalist Para military or an Orange Order organisation. I don't think it has any official military connotations. If you Google up William III, you will find all you need to know about him and Protestant Ireland.
