Although it is a Lion rampant, it is not Wrekin College (or Wellington College as it was when the badge was worn).

That didnt have the torse below and would have been in GM.

I have found that over the years this is a badge associated with Scottish Volunteer units and is kind of a generic glengarry badge from late Victorian era worn by officers , possibly in several units.

Its also possible its used in a civilian glengarry of the time.

They are always well made and with a brooch fitting like yours.

regards
