Default GORDON BOYS SCHOOL

I have a anodised badge to the GORDON BOYS SCHOOL with the mark C2 on centre back. Has any one seen this type of mark before ??

I will also put this in the Anodised section.

Not seen that before Jerry.
There is a couple of Gordon School anodised badges ,one gold.and the other silver. Silver was for the pipers,but its use
was discontinued a number of years ago. These are far scarcer than the gold ones.

The only Gordon's School badge I've got, lugs very neatly removed, the stitching makes it very difficult to check for the "C2" but as far as I can make out it doesn't have the marking.

Is that the Gordon School that used to be in Gravesend? I don't think the school's there any more, but I remember it from when I went to school in Gravesend, but not that one. They used to be a rough lot.

My Grandfather went to the school, before they helped him immigrate to Canada before WWII.
