NOW SOLD – sorry this badge has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
We have only seen a couple of these Bedford Driver’s Club lapel badges over the last 10 years but would think that they were much more numerous in the 1960s.
In those far- off days many people earned their livings driving Bedford commercial vehicles which provided dependable transport all over the British Isles and beyond.
Those individuals were rightly proud of their craft and these badges were proudly worn in jacket lapels- very much ‘badges of honour’.
This gilt badge is in excellent condition with vitreous enamel detail and was made by Frays of Birmingham who were one of the most respected makers of vitreous enamel badges at the time.
The badge measures almost 1″ ( 25mm) in diameter .
The badge in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 59/92 01/21
