I think this badge is often seen with a voided crown so would venture to suggest (and agree with the other post) that this might be a later version.

Interesting to read what you've written. The GQ gold badge, from memory, has "GQ Parachute Saved My Life" as an incuse (?) backstamp then with the Gaunt marking and hallmark.

Hi

Hollow backed with traces of a loop visible. A "fashion item"? Presumably "un objet de fouille":)

Amicalement!;)

On War Service mystery?

Hi all

Any comments re this badge? Clearly some form of medical service connection. Oh, and pin-backed so possibly for female wear.

Hi

Just a thought, but the crown looks British and the pin fixing to the back is a fairly old style (with the broad hinge).

The lion also has a British look (I've seen this "stance" for a lion...

It's always good to learn more about these items. The funny thing is that you "acquire" items as and when you see them and then think about what they are later on!

I think that you can get some SA research done if you want to. I got a file for an ex-colleague's late father who was a POW taken at Tobruk. Filled in a few gaps for her and not that expensive.
