Description : This artifice is a bronze lapel pin. The badge is of cast bronze with a single stem pin back to which a cap is affixed to hold the pin in place. The badge depicts a caribou standing on a rocky crag with its head pointed toward the sky. When worn the Caribou faces the right, in the same fashion as it did when it was used as the insignia for the Newfoundland Regiment during the First World War. Surrounding the caribou is a garter with block lettering which reads "FOR KING AND COUNTRY." The bottom of the garter rests on a trapezoid shape base that contains the statement "I HAVE VOLUNTEERED." The device is surmounted by a royal Tudor crown. The back of the pin has been stamped with the serial number 2077.
Commentaires : The volunteer badge was issued during the post Great War period, to men who had volunteered for active service but who were turned down due to being classed as medically unfit. The badge was an overt way of identifying to the general public that the individual had offered his services to the war effort, as unlike returned and serving soldiers they were not allowed to wear the uniform. Though the badges were issued to individuals they were considered to be the official property of the government and each was stamped with a serial number and the recipient's name was recorded. Loss of the badge could result in a fine by the government.
Fonctions : This badge was issued to Newfoundlanders who volunteered but were turned down for service during the Great War. This badge is from a collection of military insignia owned by William Blacklar Knight Coultas, a serving soldier of the Second World War and respected officer in the Church Lad's Brigade.
