WW1 National War Savings Committee lady worker's pin badge A good original First World War period 'National War Savings Committee badge'; square brass example inlaid with black enamel, the border decorated with pound shilling and pence symbols '15'6' and '£1', chains and title 'National Savings'; the centre inappropriately depicting a swastika symbol subsequently abandoned by the committee in later years, the reverse impressed with maker's details 'A.Wylie & Co. London'. Very good condition, complete with original pin fitting, enamel perfect, minor service wear. Size 21 x 21mm. The National Savings Movement was established in 1916, to both reduce borrowing and to raise funds for the war effort. It continued until 1978 when it was dropped, due to lack of financial support from the government and the banking industry.
