Title Dublin National Volunteers cap badge
Nationality British
Period 1915
Sold

This is the badge John Redmond had made to encourage the volunteers in the Dublin area to enlist in the British army. Subsequently, the IRA utilised this badge, normally knocking out the 'NV' (National Volunteers) motif. It has the Dublin coat of arms above a wreath of shamrocks.

The finish on this example is really quite good considering the rough usage to which many of them were put over the years.

As 20th-century Irish badges go, this is a relatively rare one.
