A trully superb and difficult to find British (silver hallmarked Gaunt Birmingham 1942) made Norwegian Free Forces Haakon 7 Officers and NCO's capbadge
This is a attractive and difficult to find British made - 1942 dated silver hallmarked - Norwegian Free Forces Haakon 7 Officers and NCO's capbadge. When Germany invaded Norway in 1940 as a part of World War II, the royal family fled the country, and Haakon VII later spearheaded the Norwegian resistance in exile in the United Kingdom. H7 became one of several symbols used by the Norwegian populace to mark solidarity and loyalty to the King. The cap badge is in a perfect and never been cleaned condition. A scarce and difficult badge to find.
