Title General Service cap badge
Nationality British
Period 1914-18
Price £5.00

This badge would have been issued to soldiers who had not been allocated to a specific unit. The device is the full Royal Arms of George V. An officer would have worn something similar in bronze (this was worn by other ranks).

This die-struck badge measures just 4cm across in gilding metal. It is a crisp if slightly distorted example, with traces of pink polishing compound throughout.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
