    I got these pins in the mail today. I'm not sure of the significance but I love the depiction of the Knight slaying the dragon on this 1935 tinnie. The other two are well worn standard HJ festival pins for 1935 and 36.

    Hi Aldo,

    The St. George tinnie represents a DRL sportsfest that was held in Saarbrucken in August 1935 to commemorate the liberation of the Saar region from France a long time before. The significance of George and the dragon is unclear, but it is associated with Saarbrucken.


    Some say that the stylized image of St. George in full armour killing the dragon, represents Germany defeating France. The image is carved on one of the bridges crossing the river Saar in Saarbrucken itself today.

    Regards, Ned.
