    The VR badge was worn by Officers of the RAF Volunteer Reserve... most of Bomber Command were staffed by VR.
    The VR badges were abolished mid-1943.
    There were 2 basic attachments on the back of the VRs. The lugs through which a wire spring clip was slid; and the flat, bend-over tines. There is no period differential between the two types.

    The tined version.


    There are two sizes. Large and Small. The larger ones are the pattern for Great Coats; not tunic lapels. The correct tunic letters measure 12 to 14 mm (3/8 in) high. They do vary in pattern - some are quite roughly stamped, and almost never have manufacturers names marked on the reverse.
