Vintage Military Pins (Each)

R33.00R54.00

I’m not particularly au fait with military paraphernalia, but meaning aside, I really love the little bucks on these vintage pins! I did try researching the pins, but I didn’t have a lot of luck. I assume that they would have been attached to uniforms somehow, perhaps lapels or berets, but exactly what uniforms, I can’t say for certain – accept for the cadet badge, that one’s pretty self explanatory (I think!). I assume that the ‘SAI’ badge must refer to the ‘South African Infantry’, and  according to some websites the smaller badges, which read “Union in strength”, were issued to military nurses, but I can’t say with any certainty whether that info is correct or not – it may be bad to admit, but personally I like them more for their aesthetic appeal than any historic value they may hold!

Note: The backs of some of the pins are a bit wonky (see photos)

Dimensions: Cadets pin – 6cm long x 5.5cm wide; SAI pin – 5.5cm long x 3.5cm wide; Medium ‘Union in strength’ pin – 3cm in diameter; Small ‘Union in strength’ pin – 2.5cm in diameter
