POW Lapel Badges

Can anyone help please?

Are brass and enamel lapel badges with legends such as:

"Prisoner of War Help" and "Birmingham Prisoner of War Aid"

from the Great war?

Most have half moon fixing and some are made by Fattorini of Bolton.

Some have embossed numbers on the back. Some are round, some oval or other more intricate shapes.

Any help will be gratefully received.

Thanks Terry. I'll pursue Fattorini.

Just to be 100% clear I should have said that these lapel badges were worn by civilians and not by POW's.

A few years ago I contacted Fattorini's about some of their WW1 badges. Unfortuantely they no longer have records for that period. If memory serves me correctly they were lost during WW2.

So if you get qa positive response from them do let us know.
