Emergency Food Officer lapel badge.
Gilt and enamel lapel badge for a Ministry of Food \'Emergency Food Officer\'. Mounted on it\'s original manufacturer\'s card with the details of H.W.Miller, B\'ham. Badge is similarly marked to the reverse on the half-moon lapel fitting. Gilt is fresh whilst the enamel is clean and undamaged, an excellent example unlikely to be bettered.
EFOs were largely administrative staff brought in to restore food supplies where disruption had been caused by air raid damage.
