Looking for a ID on this cap badge or medallion.
It reads aim for victory over sin. Any idea would be appreciated.

No luck. Can you make out the letter on the far left, before the C, on the lion and snake side?
Giving it a punt, it has a WWI era style about it, so it may be a church group dedicated to evangelising soldiers, hence ARMY DIVISION. It might have been intended to be safety-pinned to a lapel by the loop on the top...  Or it could be a group using a militant theme to promote the fight against sin in the era when drill halls were standard in towns.
