Princess Louise's WW1 Munition Maker's Canteen Lapel Pin Brooch Badge
A scarce and heavily gold plated (unmarked) cast pin badge with original and functional pin fittings to the reverse. Circa 3.5cm tall. In very good condition.
The system of works canteens was a WW1 innovation from Lloyd George's drive to improve conditions for workers and his desire to reduce alcohol related problems in the a place where war stores were being manufactured. Canteens were to be alcohol free places and intended to entice workers away from the temptation of taking their lunch in the local pub. In 1915, Lady Lawrence established the Munition Makers' Canteen Committee to organise such facilities in the various munitions making factories. The identity of the workers who wore this particular badge is probably possible to track down from the use of hte cypher for the Princess Louise. Any further information welcome.
