I think from the photographs the reverse looks quite crude.

Hi Frank

Its an Egyptian sand cast i think, made when they were posted there in 1916. Its a copy of one of the senior officers Jennens & Co badges.... either for himself .... or for his wife.

I found it in an antiques shop in the USA of all places.

Oh I see, that would explain it then, it just appeared so crude on the reverse, but, the front is very nice, I think if it was intended as a sweetheart brooch, any wife would be certainly delighted to receive it and I would think to wear it too.
