Cap badge for which regiment?

This is William Owen, possibly J. William Owen, from the Withnell area, near Chorley, Lancashire.

Can anyone have a go at identifying his regiment from the cap badge, please?

Which would mean he was 242083 Private William Owen, 2nd/5th Battalion.

Thanks very much, Eddie.

For what it's worth, I agree.

Yes the shape of the East Lancs badge does seem very clear.
