Weekly photo challenge: Relic

SweetheartsI spotted these sweetheart brooches in the German Underground Museum in Guernsey.

If you like history, it’s an interesting place to visit displaying lots of artefacts relating to the WW2 German Occupation of the Channel Islands.

    That’s very interesting – I have an almost identical brooch dating from WW1 and the Royal Flying Corps (the forerunner to the RAF). I had assumed my grandfather wore it on his uniform but presumably it was actually my grandmother’s. You live and learn – many thanks!

      Thank you. How intriguing! I really like how you’ve displayed your Grandfather’s memorabilia and it’s wonderful how it’s been kept in the family after such a passage of time.
