Default CD Beret Badge

Hi All,

I thought this badge might be of interest to some of you, I'm guessing from the size it was used as a beret badge?

A beret or other headdress badge indeed. The official version introduced in 1943 was printed but embroidered versions were available to be bought.

Yours is slightly unusual as it has an added border.

Shown worn on the ladies felt hat.
