Badge help

Postby Karen196 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi, we have a picture of my 2nd gt grandmother wearing what we think is a royal artillery badge. Mainly we were wondering why she would be wearing it? She does appear to be in black so wondering if she is wearing after one of her sons passed away.

We are just guessing really and are seeking advice. She lived in Liverpool from 1873 and 1951.

Thanks, Karen

I think that your guess is as good as ours but commemoration sounds a good idea to me.

PS - it looks like an RA badge to me too.
