Default On War Service 1915 badge

Hi

I found a newspaper item about the 1915 OWS badge that mentions the introduction of the brass version calling it "a replica of that hitherto issued by the War Office without the enamel".

It further states that it was only to be issued to "skilled workmen engaged in war work- draughtsmen, technical assistants supervising staff and all skilled and semi-skilled workmen whose services are indispensable, but not unskilled workmen"

Probably all well-known stuff to those with an interest but it is nice to see how it was viewed at the time.

I have quoted from the article as I wasn't sure that it was going to upload....
