A Red Cross badge

Today we look at another item found by local metal detectorist, Norman, on the old recreation ground. It is a Red Cross Badge.

This, as we see, is a British Red Cross Society button badge and in remarkably good order for something found in the ground.

The badge measures about 2cm in diameter as we can see in this shot of the back.

We are not certain of the age of such a badge. Maybe somebody ‘out there’ can help.
