Post by: tamhem1 on November 06, 2015, 06:59:01 PM
Decided to brave the rain and had a local woodland hunt and amongst the finds was this little On War service badge dated 1914 can only guess at munitions worker ? Or maybe something else cheers  again tam(http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p629/tamhem/0537E491-9811-4923-A189-F22A5A822175_zpsdejjkwor.jpg) (http://s1159.photobucket.com/user/tamhem/media/0537E491-9811-4923-A189-F22A5A822175_zpsdejjkwor.jpg.html)(http://i1159.photobucket.com/albums/p629/tamhem/19E5A960-CF2B-4BAE-975B-BB0B84367E4C_zpsyo6s2s56.jpg) (http://s1159.photobucket.com/user/tamhem/media/19E5A960-CF2B-4BAE-975B-BB0B84367E4C_zpsyo6s2s56.jpg.html)

Nice, shame a bit blurred, these were given to men of professional trades during WW1, it normally meant you were unable to enlist as your skill was required elsewhere for the war effort, it also stopped you being given a white feather.
