Default Ring help please!

Best as I can figure, I would guess Canadian with the maple leaf. It’s 10k over sterling, possibly a semi precious stone there too, but unsure. 1939-1945 seem pretty obvious, but the “pagoda” with a cross on top and the “VG” have me
stumped. Could be initials of course or “victory” something or “Victoria” something, but outside of a guess relating to Hong Kong, I just can’t ID it. Can anyone help? Thanks.

My completely unsupported theory would be that somebody had it made after the war and that his name was 'Victor' or 'Vincent G....' and the pagoda memorializes his service in Asia - more likely Burma than Hong Kong.

I can't think of any Canadian unit with a VG, nor doe any show up in the CMHS list of Cdn military abbreviations for War Two.

hmm have a close look at it. There is a Cross on top of the 'Pagoda' so mostl likely not a 'Pagoda' at all. A Cenotaph perhaps??

1939-1945 indicates European war theatre IMO
Always interested in medal bars with EK2 from ww2!
Iron crosses, dog tags, ground find badges and medal bars collector.
