Norwegian Red Cross pin?

Recommended Posts

Hi gents,


recently I was able to buy the estate of a saxonian family. This pin was also located in it.

Unfortunateley the photos are not ideal, the silver stamps are    J.T. 925 S




Any help appreciated.


Kind regards

This could be a lapel pin for the Niederlandse Rode Kruis.  I believe there is also a "N.R.K. Junior" version of this badge for the Jeugd Rode Kruis of the Netherlands. 


I couldn't find a regular NRK badge but I found a badge for youth volunteers of the Netherlands.

Great Dane is absolutely correct. 

It's norwegian and from J. Tostrup. 


These pins exists with both the full name "J. Tostrup" and "J.T." on the back.

Is it a normal membership badge?



No, it is not a very normal pin. We don't see them too often. But on the other side, there is not that many people who collect them.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
