Hi, This is a copy of some information that I passed on to someone else regarding this badge: Immediately after the completion of the War in 1918 a special mine clearance force was organised to sweep the large number of mines which had been laid. Many men who would have otherwise have been released remained to serve in this force. It members wore silver badge on the cuff, depicting the floating mine surrounded by a wreath. Regards Arthur
