It is on a small badge, with a coat of arms (anticlockwise from top left -scales/hand holding flaming torch/geni's? lamp/wobbly line with 3 dots) which I beleive was my late mothers college badge from 1940's. It was with her things. Many thanks.

Hi, The badge you talk about is linked with the Warton training college,
which was an Emergency teacher training college set up in 1947. I believe it was situated on hillock lane Freckleton.
