Title Air Raid Police badge, hallmarked silver
Nationality British
Period 1938
Sold

This is the lapel badge with which all Air Raid Police were issued to wear on their civil clothes. They were never issued with uniforms, only this, together with a whistle and a tin hat. However, in many respects, these men were among the real heroes of the Blitz, as they were responsible for shepherding people into the shelters.

It is fully London hallmarked for 1938 on the reverse, with the maker mark JC in an oblong punch.

The condition is excellent, showing little sign of wear. It has a brass pin on the reverse.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.

The tipstaff arrived safe this morning, and I am very pleased with it.
