Brass Irish Guards other ranks “Sweet Hearts” cap badge. (1604037)


In stock


This is a most interesting and original brass Irish Guards cap badge that has a brooch fitting attached to the reverse. This indicates that the badge at some stage was converted to be worn on civilian attire most likely made for a lady, hence the term “sweet heart badge”.
I would suggest that the most likely age of this badge is either manufactured during the Great War era or during the Second World War at the very latest.
