Identification long shot?

  Brumas 23:43 08 Feb 2007

My wife collects pre-war picture postcards, mostly of North Northumberland (the area we live in)also a specific type of heraldic card showing town coats-of-arms and lots more beside!
I also quite enjoy getting involved finding out where places are and identifying strange buildings/objects, deciphering messages etc. etc.
I wonder if anyone can throw any light on this particular postcard.

Around the inner circle is written ‘Fight the good fight of faith’ and I obviously have Googled the Latin phrase so I know what that means. Does anyone recognise which Cadet Brigade it is and possibly the fine imposing house/school for no reason if only to satisfy my own curiosity?

This is the first time I have used Image Shack so I hope I have done it correctly.

I have just realised the latin motto is not very clear - it is HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE.

Shot in the dark - school or college? Combined Cadet Force (CCF)?

The motto is that of the Garter and means "shame on him who thinks evil of it". Is there something with a connection to the Garter in that neck of the woods?

Could the monogram in the center be something to do with "...... Merchant's College" I think deciphering the monogram will probably prove useful if anyone can do it. It looks like a school type building to me. ..Bingalau..

As it states Cadets, i would assume the M and C night mean Military College.

The cannons might imply Artillery links.

The kind people here help with identifying all sorts of things in photos and with ancestral tracing too.

Thanks for that link; just what I was looking for.

Looks a bit like Marlborough College to me. The 'Honi soit...' motto appears on all Army badges and stndards.

What's the third letter in the monogram? is it a "J" ? ..Bingalau..

Thanks for all the input.
Z1100 - shall give that a try.
Bingalau - hard to tell, looks like an I.
