Easingwold is still the government's Emergency Planning College.

Do we have any proof that these CAGS enamel badges existed, Jon? I'm sure, by logic, they should have done.

I failed to find an example for my lapel badge book. Given the number who must have been trained, there ought to be an example out there somewhere.
