4) The 1916 "On War Service" triangular badge, issued to women workers. These come mostly in brass, but all gilded, white metal and nickel plated, and occasionally with the corners rounded off.

I've just picked up on this thread, what is the crossed cannon enrolment badge? I'm not sure I've seen one of those.
