Question about Kanji on the reverse of Aikoku Fujinkai member Badge.

Good morning everyone.

I just seen an interesting inscription partially hidden under the pin on the reverse of only members' Badge suspension (it's not on merit badges).

This inscription is "半襟一掛", that seems to say "to wear on the midlle of collar" (?)

Is this correct ?

Thank you for answers.

More like 

"To wear on the kimono haneri".

Haneri (半襟, “half collar”) is a decorative collar sewed on the nagajuban, that you can put the erishin inside it, before wearing kimono.
