    Default VW Voluntary Worker badges

    Just wondered what your understanding of these badges was. My opinion was Great War for the brass type and WW2 for the enamel one?

    Who/what/why/when were they actually for?

    This is prompted by a disagreement with a fellow collector recently as he said they were 1st World War WVS!

    Hello
    I think you're right:
    Sally Bosleys Badge Shop
    and the second (enamel)
    On 16 May 1938, the British government set out the objectives of the Women's Voluntary Service for Civil Defence

    Although often sold as Womens Voluntary, I think they are actually Volunteer Worker and nothing to do with the WVS at all.
    The first type would seem to be Great War, the second WW2.

    I would agree with unionjack.
