WWI 1915 On War Service Badge

WWI On War Service Munitions Worker Home Front Badge, 1915  - Brass, marked "L" and maker marked "J.R. GAUNT & SON Ltd LONDON" on the reverse, numbered "82732" on the buttonhole attachment, very crisp detail, 26 mm x 42.6 mm, light contact, very fine. Footnote: One reason for the issue of the “On War Service” badges was that when the war began, voluntary enlistment was unregulated and skilled men were joining up and leaving companies with a shortage of skilled labour essential to maintaining the country’s war capability. “Badging” essential workers helped to retain those skilled workers. While these badges were unofficial, these company “On War Service” badges were tolerated by the War Office.
