I'd tend to the 'memorial' theory myself: made to remember Pte Geekie, possibly from a ring he owned - you've outlined the evidence for that. But, as it came out of an estate sale the odds are we'll never know, as those who knew the story would not likely have sold it.

I’ll try digging further from the seller, I know I have an email address somewhere. I guess the seller being from Quebec helps not at all...

Well plus and minus from the seller, minus- really no info on the owner, estate is all he knows, but that they buy often from “western Canada” which when I asked about the ring and he said yes, it was from an estate in Manitoba. Dead end- but I think we have a good bit so far!!
