Hi

This type of stylised "rose" setting for the centre button reminds me of a selection of sporting,etc. medals for, of all things, The Glasgow Police College.

However, it seems to be a common...

Hi Mike

A nice item. I would think that the cost of a gold badge would have been increasing and an h/m gilded silver badge would look the part.

Many of our Life Member badges sometimes aren't...

I have a small pressed silver (?) 75mm gun brooch set inside a a monocle arrangement with a piece of tricolore ribbon and what looks like a piece of moss. Must dig it out! :)

What is R.D.S.?

This one has had me wondering for a long time. Presumably WW1, but what does the R.D.S stand for?

OWS badge for ?????

Anyone care to try working out this monogram? Looks like W & S Co Ltd.

I entertained the possibility that it may be Webley & Scott so can anyone offer an alternative or confirm my hunch?

Having spent some time trying to read old writing and also trying to work out this type of monogram, I'll go with "K. A."

Suggestion: "A" for "Artillery"?

Hi Mark

Just a thought, but if this is a sweetheart badge, they may have registered silver maker's mark even if this badge isn't silver.

Try Google under "British silver maker's marks" or...

Continuing the aircraft theme, but no prizes for identifying the company!

A very plain looking badge, I feel.

OWS, but what company?

Hi

Attached are scans of two OWS badges that share a similarity in design but attempts to identify them have so far proved fruitless. Badges are a little bigger than the standard 1914 Admiralty...
