    Please can you help with identifying this badge. All I know is that it has been in our family for over 40 years (apparently it used to belong to a great uncle).

    It is enamel and stamped "sterling" on the reverse.

    Approx Dimensions :-
    Length of pin - 32mm
    Length of flag - 13mm
    Height of flag - 10mm
    Weight - 2 grams

    Any help would be gratefully received.

      These are usually called 'Sweetheart' pins or brooches and were popular during wartime and often worn by wives and girlfriends of serving personnel.
