British WW1 Silver Wound Badge
Result of shopping trip today.
The Silver War Badge was issued in the United Kingdom to service personnel who had been honourably discharged due to wounds or sickness during World War I. The badge, sometimes known as the Discharge Badge, Wound Badge or Services Rendered Badge, was first issued in September 1916, along with an official certificate of entitlement.
The sterling silver lapel badge was intended to be worn in civilian clothes. It had been the practice of some women to present white feathers to apparently able-bodied young men who were not wearing the King's uniform. The badge was to be worn on the right breast while in civilian dress, it was forbidden to wear on a military uniform.
The badge bears the royal cipher of GRI (for Georgius Rex Imperator; George, King and Emperor) and around the rim "For King and Empire; Services Rendered". Each badge was uniquely numbered on the reverse.
Cufflinks: Pound Sterling Librae
Before my trip to England I hadn't planned on any major shopping. I was just going to browse and see what caught my eyes.
Well, a pair of sterling silver cufflinks from the Bank of England Museum shop did just that. The Pound symbol is quite fitting for me as it's derived from the Latin word Librae (the scales, the balance), and I'm a Libran myself. Plus, suprisingly, the price of the silver cufflinks is quite reasonable.
