SR Railway Service lapel badge.
Oval, chromed brass and enamel, pinback lapel badge indicating employment with the Southern Railway. Railway service badges were based on a generic design with only the intials of the company to identify the individual railways, they were to be worn in and out of railway uniform. Manufacturer marked to the reverse \'Fattorini & Sons, B\'ham\' and individually numbered. This example is unusual for having been chromed, examples in chrome appear for all of the major railway companies but as yet, the significance is not known. In good overall condition with some rubbing to highspots.
