A Welsh Colliery Long Service Award Badge

This badge, depicting an un-bonneted Clanny flame safety lamp, is believed to have been issued to a collier from Blaenant Colliery to commemorate fifty years service. It probably dates to the mid twentieth century just prior to the privatization of the Coal Industry in 1947.  

Actual badge measures 22 mm by 33 mm. The badge has a button hole attachment on its reverse  (picture courtesy of John Soppitt).
