    Had to smile when I saw this one. It is being sold as a rare/unusual Air Raid Precautions badge. I expect the eagle eyed among you will have noticed that the figure in the centre is holding a bird? Therefore I am 99% sure that ARP stands for a town beginning with A and that RP is for Racing Pigeons!!

    Uhm, well maybe... but what if it is a rare trade badge for the handlers of carrier pigeons used for communications by the Air Raid Precautions service?

    (Seriously, though, I wonder about the symbolism: An apparently female figure holding a bird, within a field whose outlines appear to be that of a feline head...?)

    I do have a couple of interesting ARP badges coming up for sale at work on Friday.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ah ha, I've got it. It must be the the cats league Against Racing Pigeons! After all the cat is the number one enemy of the average pigeon (excluding heavy traffic or shotgun pellets).
