Lapel Badge - Stand Down

Pictures
Body

After the war had ended a small enamel badge was given to many Auxiliers with their stand down letter. Some reports state they had to pay 6d for them.

These are now rare and can command a fair price. Sadly there are an increasing amount of forgeries for sale. Please study the images carefully before purchasing or contact us for advice.

The design errors on the forgeries are often the size and finish and the rear has what looks like could have been a pin fixing rather than a butterfly clip. There are other design errors that we do not want to list as may encourage better forgeries !

Most forgeries we have seen have been sold through eBay or East Bristol Auctions both of whom have been made aware these are not original and so are not labelled as such in sales.
