A rare opportunity to acquire an Irish Army Chaplain’s collar badge, with Irish silver hallmarks for 1942. This silver and gilt badge was once worn by a Chaplain who served with the Irish Defence Forces during the Emergency period (1939/46).
As there was only something in the region of 60 or so Chaplain’s medals issued in 1946 to Irish Defence Forces military Chaplains, this indicates the rarity of the Emergency period Chaplain’s collar badge on offer here. A scarce survivor from the Emergency.
