Default Wycliffe College Cadet Corps

I have just bought this badge and am rather pleased with it. It is not in K&K but I have identified it as Wycliffe College Cadet corps. The school magazine from that time includes the Cadet Corps entries which confirms that they had one.

I have found an archive picture from a photo album on ebay which shows the college's cadet corps in WW1 and they are wearing this griffin badge.

If anyone has a copy of Rawlins to hand I would be grateful if they could check whether it is in there.

Alan,

the only thing mentioned in the edition of Rawlings that I have, is the cloth title for Wycliffe College CCF.

I have now seen one of these and it is not military but a Yeovil school uniform cap badge with eyes for stitching on to a school cap worn pre 1925.
