Description

A superb WW1 WV lapel badge backed with a period Red Cross formation sign, mounted on its original Red Cross  ‘backing card’.

A standard WV badge with reverse issue number, mounted on a felt Red Cross, showing (via the issue card) association with the British Red Cross Society, Cornwall Work Auxiliary.

The backing card (in red to its revers, see images) is missing sadly the bottom arm of the cross.

A superb British home front service badge with direct links to a specific ‘type’ of war work.

Their is fragility to the backing card as well as the felt Red Cross, not detracting from the badges ambience.

The WV badge in its own right is into so rare, but in conjunction with, the Red Cross element etc. etc.

Only one of this combined type I have ever owned.
