A good untouched all brass 1916 On War Service lapel badge.
Good crisp obverse detail, reverse with Brooch pin fitting, a six digit issue number, and maker details ‘J.R. Gaunt & Son Ltd. London’.
By 1916 Greta numbers of war workers were needed with women coming into the factories and on war work. Hence this badge was produced with a female/duel reverse fitting and the large issue number showing increased numbers in the service.
