Birmingham Pals WW1 large button, 26mm


The brass 26mm button has the wording 2nd BIRMm BATT  R WARWICKSHIRE 1914 . The button has the backmark  J. R. GAUNT & SON LTD, LONDON. A scarce survival from one of these short lived ‘Pals’ battalions which often suffered very heavily and the well intentioned cameraderie of close knit units resulted in tragic loss in cities where whole streets of houses lost fathers, sons, and brothers.         may9/3
