Default British Legion Womens Badges

Does anybody know if the Womens Section of the Royal British Legion are producing a badge this year?

I did hear that there was some doubt if the RBLWS would be producing any further annual badges.

My last one was 2010. If you have any spare from then until now I could be interested. I used to get mine from a lady called Margaret -lost all other details of this lady. She was a member of the RBL Womens Section.

I was getting mine from Margaret too. I have the complete run of them.

The last one I got was last year, when she told me that there was some question about any future issues of RBLWS annual badges.

I have had no reply to an email I sent to Margaret long before Easter, but I can send her contact details via PM, if you want them..

Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but I'm trying to put together a record of all the RBLWS Annual Pins.

Have managed to find a lot of photos from online copies of WS magazine but am still missing a few years , anyone got any pics ?

I've only got 2002 pin (x2) so am on the lookout for any others.

Thanks

Mike

Further to this, I am attaching a scan of a 2019 RBLWS badge.

It is a shiny brass coloured badge with some sort of clear plastic layer on the top. Thus the scan is of poor quality, but will give an idea of what to look for.

Around the edge of the badge is written "Royal British Legion Women's Section" in black lettering, and "2019" at the bottom. "Winchester" is written across a depiction of Winchester Cathedral.

The National Conference of the RBLWS was held at Winchester on 31st January 2019.

There was some debate about the future of the RBLWS, and thus also the annual badges. It seems possible that they could be changing the type of design from "girly" interests, and linking the annual badge with the conference location.

We shall see in 2020.

Thanks for the info and photo , at least now I'll know what to keep an eye out for.

Some of the Conference/Branch badges don't immediately scream RBL at first glance.

Thumbs up Half way - almost !

Found a few more Conference pins (not listed as RBL) , so now have from 2000 - 2006 + 2009 and 2015.( 9 out of 20)

It's taken me 8 month but it shows that they do appear but hard to find as descriptions confusing and hard to search for.
