Retro club badges

Retro club badgesHornsby RSL badges
made in Sydney, 1968 – 1986

I love these badges due to their horticultural component – the Waratah, the NSW floral emblem. Good old Hornsby [a mover and shaker on the Sydney suburban scene] has snaffled the waratah for its own.

Twelve badges from Hornsby RSL– covering the years ’68 to ’86 [a nice synchronicity.] The RSL is the Returned & Services League; a support organisation for people who are/were serving in the Australia Defence Force.

A lovely collection if you a] live in Hornsby and frequent the RSL; or b] make jewellery out of enamelled badge pieces. There are some fantastic makers out there doing fantastic things with old enamelled badges.
