Many years ago when trawling through Antique or Junk shops it was not uncommon to come across a NUPPO badge, usually accompanying Police Badges or Medals.

Not so these days as the badges seldom come to light but do appear from time to time on e-bay. I think that  Metropolitan Police, Birmingham City, Birkenhead or Liverpool Police Medal/s to a Striker would be enhanced with the display of a Badge that signifies the sacrifice that came with Loyalty to the National Union Of Police and Prison Officers.

Thanks Fellas,  Simon, It is at present in a frame but it has a horse shoe fitting and is a  lapel badge. I will have a look to  see if it is named and   " Attempt" to scan and post an image. I do know of several relatives of strikers who wear a NUPPO badge in honour of their forebear.

Hi Simon,

The rear of the badge is very difficult to make out but having enlisted the help of a pair of young eyes the badge reads :

On horseshoe fitting   Reg.638232

Around top   Reg.  em 833656

Around bottom  Thomas Fattorini Bolton

Hope this helps as I don't think badge will scan too well.

This badge was in a Princess Mary WWI box with a 1914-15 Trio (Coldstream Guards) and Lverpool City Police medals, to  Wilfred Clarke HARE, who was from the North East but joined Liverpool City Police 1912, joined Army at outbreak of war (Maybe recalled to Colours) rejoined Police as Constable 105"B" after being wounded and discharged (correct Wound Badge with Group) He was not a Striker as he retired on 25/1/1937 after 25 years service but may have been a NUPPO member. Who knows he may have been one of the 50 "Lost Sheep" who returned to the  fold before the deadline set by the Watch Committee thus escaping the fate of approx. 955 colleagues who were cast into the wilderness of unemployment. Wilfred passed away on 17/12/1966 aged 75 years.

Hope of interest

 

Peter

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
