I don't know what this pin is exactly - it was in the baggy with John Hathaway's pins. (Harold Bridge is the executor of the John Hathaway pin baggy.) Perhaps it is an AUK pin acknowledging a PBP completion? [Additional, Nov 2007:] Some dating info about this pin has been offered by David Minter from the Australia: "[The pin] shows an AUK PBP medal/pin that was awarded up till the early or mid 1980s."
