Let’s start with the question. Can anyone out there tell me anything about Lavington Boys’ Club?
You see, this badge is another find from the old recreation ground.
This clearly says Lavington Boys’ Club and has the initials LBC on the gold centre. We couldn’t be certain but we think the other marks in the centre are just damage.
This is a button hole badge for wearing on the lapel of a jacket.
We can see its fastening (presumably not quite adequate) and also that it was made by W O Lewis Badges of Birmingham. That’s a company with a long and continuing history. It was founded in 1832 and is still in operation now, more than 180 years on and still run by members of the founding family. That’s great for them but does little to help us date the badge.
Do get in touch if you can tell us anything about this club.
