All those years ago drivers of these heavy goods vehicles were very proud of the brand of vehicle which they drove and often wore a lapel badge in their jacket lapel .

This also aided recognition of a driver of a similar vehicle in a transport cafe .

The badge is in very good condition with cobalt blue vitreous enamelling on gilt.

Albion’s motto was ‘Sure as the Sunrise’ with a stylised sunrise depicted on the badge.
Albion Motor Co. originally operated from Finnieston Street in Glasgow Scotland and became part of British Leyland in 1951 producing the famous Chieftain, Clydesdale and Reiver trucks and the Albion name was finally discontinued by British Leyland in 1972.
