Default Unknown Badge? Need help identifying please

Hi All, My name is Jeremy and Iím a lapel badge collector from Australia. Iíve been to 28 countries and do my best to stop by military stores and antique store to find unique one off items such as lapel pins. Recently, well in Canberra, I popped into an antique store and found this lapel pin, looked interesting and of course purchased it, I can see itís marked with an British order badge but upon searching, I found very little info about it and wondered if anyone would be able to please help me identify it. Cheers, J

Hi Jeremy,

The badge in question is the Order of the British Empire (OBE) Civil Division,
Military Division would have a grey strip down the centre. Strictly a civilian lapel badge.
