The "On War Service" and other Home Front Badges

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a new member, and was kindly pointed i  this direction recently (thanks Jerry!).

Firstly, thanks to all for showing some outstanding badges. I recently picked up this badge, maker marked JA Reseal. I know they also came in a "1915" variant. 

Does anyone know anything further about them?

Many thanks, Tim

Hi

I have two examples of the "Imperial Service" tablet that have been "altered": one with the addition of three GS buttons and another with an ASC title, the King's crown lovingly soldered above the title!

I had no idea what this was when I bought it. The EOF rang a bell but that was about it. Looking at it when I got home the penny dropped I was looking at crossed mortar bombs. I bought it in Woburn Bedfordshire and the seller said it had come from a house clearance with a Bedfs & Herts Regt sweetheart badge. This leads me to think EOF is Elstow Ordnance Factory. I posted it on another forum and have been advised PAD is Passive Air Defence.
