I've one too and it's in my collection as Glasgow High School? (see KK 2564).

Andy, thanks for the swift reply. As a rag picker (formation sign collector) I do not have K&K; so is the badge a CCF contingent hat badge? Any info most welcome.

Martin.

Martin,

it is either a variation of the OTC/CCF cap badge or a Glasgow City Council workers badge?
