Removed from overalls, a good worn example with folded over edges, some now a bit frayed and lifting and some stitching marks, and a bit grubby. Of Calico Printers manufacture.
In August 1942 an article in the magazine War Illustrated announced the approval a new badge "to be worn by the men and women engaged in Royal Ordnance Filling Factories" to acknowledge the debt of the country to those undertaking this dangerous work. The cloth badge being presumed for wear on the overalls, but photographic evidence also shows it also being worn on the sleeves of lady clerks from the wages department of ROF Kirkby. There is a plastic version of the badge sealed in 1941.
