For your consideration, this triangular insignia with the letters "ASC" under a red eagle has the "look and feel" of US WWII insignia though is manufacturer marked "J.R.GAUNT LONDON."  It measures 1 1/4 inch along each side, blue and red enamels and gilt finished with a standard pin and catch of the British early to mid-20th century style.  Any insights into the identification and history of this insignia/organisation would be appreciated.  Thank you.

 

with kindest regards,

 

Tim

This is purely a guess but look close at the line the eagle is standing on, could be A......... Ski Club.

When I see a red eagle, I think Austria or Germany.

Good eye - I hadn't noticed what could very well be a ski.  You may well be on the right trail.  Thank you.
