British Legion Volunteer Police Force
The British Legion Volunteer Police Force cap badge comprises the British Legion silvered and enamel lapel badge, superimposed on a silver gilt metal star surmounted by a Victorian Crown. The badge has a very long, narrow slider fitted to the rear.
For the greatcoat a very much smaller version of the cap badge was designed and had for some inexplicable reason a Kings Crown atop the star, with two loop fixings to the rear. The normal standard membership lapel badge was worn in the left lapel button hole.
British Legion Commissionaires Badge
A version of the British Legion Volunteer Police Force cap badge was produced after WWII for use by British Legion members employed as Commissionaires, but the central device on this badge is much smaller than the larger version worn by the British Legion Volunteer Police Force, and the slider fitting is wider (as above right hand side badge).
The Force was formed on the 6th October 1938, and was entitled The British Legion Volunteer Police Force. It was disbanded on the 15th October 1938, some ten days later.
