Solid Silver ARP Air Raid Precaution Badge 1938 A solid silver ARP badge, hallmarked London 1938.

From 1 September 1939, ARP Wardens enforced the "blackout".

WW2 Nazi Black Wound Badge A WW2 German Nazi Black wound badge award. These were issued to soldiers injured once or twice as a result of hostile action. The black grade was stamped from sheet brass, later steel, and was painted matt or semi-matt. It has a hollow back with a needle pin. They were rarely stamped (15-20%) with a makers mark, but if one was present it would be on the reverse. Because of the decline in materials late war badges of this grade often tended to rust.

WW2 Solid Silver RAF Cigarette Case Birmingham 1939 A superb solid silver RAF cigarette case. The case is Hallmarked Birmingham 1939. The case is square in shape and very much of Art Deco design. The interior has a gilt finish and the case has its original elastic strap to keep the cigarettes in place. The case has what appears to be a mark from the strap on its inside (see pic). I’m confident this would be easily cleaned off. The exterior of the case would benefit from a good clean. The case measures 8 cm across by 8.5cm tall. A great piece of WW2 RAF memorabilia.
