CCF Cap Badge

Greetings Michael:
 
You will recall that back in May you put me in touch with Steve Blake who had enquired of you about Hampshire Regimental badges. Well, Steve and I have had several interesting exchanges of e-mail, thank you, out of which has come the attachment hereto which is said to be the cap badge, in white metal, of Prices Cadets at some time.It is obviously "our" lion (more correctly the lion of William Price's family heraldry) and 1721 is our founding. 1908 escapes me at the moment.
I don't know if we have an archivist at this time but maybe you or someone has knowledge of the origin? Perhaps it was not a cadet corps cap badge at all,  but an early school cap emblem? (Before the embroidered one that we all remember.) Or?
In any case it would be a nice picture to post on the web!
 
Cheers and thanks, Richard
