British Legion Beret Badges
The Standard Bearers Beret Badge
By 1952 nearly every British Legion branch in the country had their own Branch Standard.
Annual County and Area Standard Bearers competitions were held which of course lead on to the First National Standard Bearers Competition.
Which coincidentally, it was at that year's annual conference that it was decided that all British Legion Standard Bearers should wear black berets with the Legion Badge.
This avoided when lowering the standard a then rather complicated manoeuvre of having to remove the bowler hat that all Standard Bearers wore.
The Club thanks Mrs Tracy Fowler and Mr Jerry Murphy for making this exhibition of Standard Bearers Beret Badges possible.
