Default ID KHS Title

Hi All,

any ideas on this title? HS could be High School.
Rather large; I thought possibly a slouch hat badge

Hi Steve,

I thought of Kimberley High but could only find a KHS Cadet Corps title.
From the nature of the title, were they active during the siege by any chance?

Merry Christmas to you too

Iain

Hi Steve, being white metal I would lean towards pre 1920. However these things can be all over the place. I don't think Boer War though. Regards Andrew
