RFC Lapel / Sweetheart Badge

Recommended Posts

rolt968

In an ongoing major tidy up I have come across my grandfather's RFC Lapel badge which he gave to my grandmother. It was something of a relief as I thought I might have mislaid it. (As it turns out it was not where I thought it was!) It is also a relief as I had begun to doubt whether it was RFC rather than RAF.

 

Anyway. It leads me to the problem. As I am getting older and have no close relatives - where does it go after my death (not too soon I hope)?

 

Firstly I do not want it sold. I suspect that they are relatively common so in itself it will be of no great interest to museum. ( When I was at the RAF Museum at Hendon some years ago I spoke to someone who said that they would like to see it since it could be connected to a particular airman.)

 

The family photos are to go to a distant relative so I suppose I could add it to them.

 

I would welcome advice.

 

I was going to post a photo, but the camera battery was flat! I will post a photo as soon as possible.

I would keep it with the photos you are giving to your distant relative, making sure they know its importance. It's always better to keep things together.

I agree, as I have done the same with my family pieces.

Thank you,

 

That makes sense as there will be pictures of my grandfather in uniform. (My avatar is a picture of grandfather who survived WW1 but collapsed and died in his late 40s.)
