Given the colours they might be something to do with nursing. ARP Nursing Auxiliaries perhaps.

I see you are now selling them on ebay.

Seems a bit expensive?

Just another 'casual member' taking advantage of the knowledge on here to see what something is worth before selling it.

I'm off the same mind here. Badges that I'd like to have, but far too expensive.

TBH, these badges normally go for about 25 each. The dress with the badges on it sells for about 90-110.

Many apologies it seems that i have caused upset. that is not my intention.
Yes i suppose i am a "casual member" as i rarely post here.
I do however read the threads on the forum fairly often, as i find it educational.

Also, i NEVER ask what something is worth.

Again, my apologies if i have annoyed anyone.

There are an awful lot of these around at the moment, a very large number turned up and entered the market place last year, so don't be tempted to pay too much, the seller might well have another dozen!
