Default WLA Proficiency Badge

Not my area really, but thought it might be of interest to some: plastic/Bakelite(?) WLA proficiency badge.

‘A Stanley & Sons Walsall’ maker mark.

Regards,

Terry,

My apologies; I should have stated in the OP that the badge is not mine, but on display at the Museum of Dartmoor Life.

Regards,

JT
