Title Royal Engineers horseshoe sweetheart brooch, George VI
Nationality British
Period c 1945
Price £5.00

The Royal Engineers were responsible for bridge/road building, mine fields, their laying and clearance, etc. These brooches would have been worn by women on their handbags and lapels to commemorate the service of their men in the field, a tradition which started in the Boer War.

Measuring 2.5cm across, it is of two-piece construction, made from gilding metal and enamel. It is in excellent condition, with some wear to the gilding.
