Title KuK 95th Regiment, Widows & Orphans Fund badge
Nationality Austrian
Period 1916
Price £15.00

This is a pot metal badge, maker marked on the reverse 'Gurschner Wien VII/2'. It is a nicely patinated example of the widows and orphans fund school of badges, clearly marked to the 95th regiment and dated 1916.

Typically these badges were sold to raise money for the widows and orphans of the relevant units and were normally worn on the left-hand side of the Austrian field cap. Sometimes as many as six were worn all together.

This particular example has, sadly, had the pin and hinge removed from the reverse. Otherwise it is in nice shape.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
