Default Liverpool Home Defence League

Not sure if this is the right category but I am very pleased to have won this WW1 VTC mufti badge.

Still a few more Liverpool VTC badges ( that I know about ) that I am looking for but you never know what you will find as long as you keep looking.

Peter,

Its interesting that the Crown on this badge has been illegally defaced by the inclusion of the word "Liverpool".

Dave.

Well done , I spotted it while "browsing" but it wasn't my area of collecting.

P.
Found an old auction listing for a "City of Liverpool Volunteer Guard" badge (Charliedog has one in his album) that included some info :

Quote:
A book of press cuttings in the Liverpool Record Office shows that there were numerous units or subunits by 1915:Civic Service League , Home Defence League , Athletes Volunteer Force , National Volunteer Reserve [with companies at Dingle and Aigburth] , National Defence League , Leyfield Grange Drill Club (West Derby) , Cotton Exchange Corps , Postoffice Drill Club ,Revenue Officials’ Club , Tramway Corps , Corporation Officials Corps , Kirkdale Home Defence Corps Special Constables [to be allowed to transfer] , Wavertree Patriotic Rifle Club .Membership varied between 60 and 700, the total quoted was 2500. It is likely that most of these were short-lived.
