Something to think about ?

Quote:
It was formed in 1904 with the establishment of a cadet company at The Lodge School by schoolmaster Captain Radcliffe Hall. Soon after, Cadet Companies were formed at Harrison College and Combermere School. In 1912, these three school companies became affiliated with the Barbados Volunteer Force.
Each of the above had their own "Barbados Cadet Corp" badges , six pointed star with scroll , with their school/college shield .

So , did Harrison and Combermere have their own 'cadet' badges before affiliation ?

NOTE : The Combermere badge has a spelling error - Combermore

Excellent Mike.

I wondered why I’d found 3 variations of central device. The affiliation with three different British schools makes sense.

So my money is on Lodge School Cadets.

Hopefully Alan has some background on the latter, my feeling are the badge may date 1930s-50s.

Thanks again.

"POSSUNT QUIA POSSE VIDENTUR" is one of my old school mottos (North Wales). It loosely translates, from Latin, to "In order that they may have life".

Lodge School state their motto is : "They can because they think they can".

...my bad.... its was "UT VITAM HABEANT" (below the Earl of Powis crest) from my other college...... forgive me... it was a long time ago

This is my college heraldry that I confused the other with.
