    Hi everyone.  I'm trying to identify this badge that was mounted in a shadow box with my Great Grandfather's mini OBE medal, his "For Service at the Front" pin, and cloth patches related to competition at Bisley.  I'm assuming it's related to the other items as they all date from the same time period. Any ideas?

    It appears to be a school pin. The Collège-Seminary of Nicolet in Montreal.

    Thanks...but very odd. As far as I know, he has no connection with the Nicolet seminary...he immigrated to Canada in 1889 where he promptly enlisted in Fredericton. Looks like I'll have to do some more research.
