Silly questions (part 48)
« on: July 16, 2017, 02:45:32 PM »
I know that I should know this but what is the difference between the standard silver/white metal Royal Infirmary Edinburgh pelican badge and the brass version? (please don't say one is silver and the other is brass) What I mean is why was the brass one issued,A Wartime economy thing?
