South Ossett (West Yorkshire) Tramway Depot Rifle Club Enamel Lapel Pin Badge and Bronze National Rifle Association (NRA) Club Medallion

South Ossett (West Yorkshire) Tramway Depot Rifle Club Enamel Lapel Pin Badge and Bronze National Rifle Association (NRA) Club Medallion

An interesting pair of items which came together. An unnamed bronze medallion and an associated enamel pin badge. The enamel on the latter is in undamaged condition and the gilt bright, original pin fitting and maker marked Fattorini & Sons, Bradford.

In 1859, as a result of the perceived threat to Great Britain from the large increase in conscript armies on the Continent and especially the growing power of France, and given further impetus by a public outcry for improvements in the Country’s defence, a new Rifle Volunteer Movement, based on that of the Napoleonic Wars, was quickly formed to great popular enthusiasm.

This led, in the same year, to the formation of the National Rifle Association designed to encourage rifle shooting by the establishment of a great annual National Rifle Meeting open to both Volunteers and all-comers. There marksmen could compete for valuable prizes. To achieve this it was necessary to ensure that the location, initially on Wimbledon Common and later at Bisley, was readily accessible by train.

WW1 Belgian Canteen Token ½D Half Penny - Van Den Berghs Ltd

WW1 Belgian Canteen Token ½D Half Penny - Van Den Berghs Ltd

Van Den Berghs' Glasgow (Lanarkshire) brass halfpenny canteen token, undated. Obverse: Legend on two curved lines with value in centre: "VAN DEN BERGHS LTD ◦ CANTEEN DEPT ◦ ½D". Reverse: Legend on two curved lines with value in centre: "VAN DEN BERGHS LTD ◦ CANTEEN DEPT ◦ ½D". Plain edge. Van Den Bergh's premises were at 20 Spoutmouth, Glasgow and they produced margarine amongst other things. Good collectable condition (VF), see photographs. Circa 26mm.

I was told that this related to canteens set up in WW1 to assist Belgian refugees in the UK, in particular the one located at Elizabethville in Birtley, County Durham (now Tyne and Wear). Van Den Bergh is of course a Belgian name. However, this is purely anecdotal.

The final photo includes a picture of the 1D and ½D coins together for comparison purposes. Only the ½D coin is for sale here.
