When I first saw this badge (in Jerry's album) I couldn't figure out the connection between Blackpool and Scotland.

Now all is revealed .

Only problem is that this is the Conference badge for 1998 and the first of the Conference lapel pin is 2000 , so was there a 1999 badge/pin ?

1999 was the 75th Anniversary of the RBLWS Scotland and they issued a pin.

May 1999 was also another 75th Anniverary:

"Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother today reviewed a Parade of Standards of the Royal British Legion Women's Section in the garden at Clarence House to mark the 75th Anniversary of Her Majesty's Presidency."

Was there a special/commemorative pin/badge for this rather than a Conference one ?

Default 2018 Pin ?

Found a photo on RBLWS Northern Ireland page of this pin , described as "Our 2018 Women's Section Pin". Does anyone know if this was for the Annual Conference or for the local branch ?

P.S I'm also after a clear picture of the 2008 pin.

Thanks.

Picked up a job lot that include a caseworker , WS treasurer , 4 WS Conference pins (2000/2001/2005/2006) and this unusual one.

Can't find anything about it on the internet but was wondering if it could 'possibly' have any connection to 1999 ?

The way the two C's are positioned give the impression of a stylised E , could this be a tribute to the 75 years of Elizabeth The Queen Mother's Presidency of the Women's Section ?

I may be grasping at straws , anyone have any other ideas ?

Another unusual one , the 2006 WS Conference pin celebrated their 85th anniversary so this may 'possibly' be a local/branch item ?
