This is an excellent enameled silver pin. Given by squadron members to their wives and girlfriends, as a commemorative. About the size of a collar device. Complete with the straight pin attachment on the back, as well as an interesting naval suspension, also in enameled silver which reads W.R.C.N.S. ( Women's Royal Canadian Navy Service ??). It is a beautiful display piece for wartime jewelry for the discerning collector of RCAF historic memorabilia.

Sweetheart badges and pins were often given to a female loved one, by their soldier lover, son (usually), or father. They could have been supplied, for a cost, by the quartermaster or by a private organization, such as Birks. Most were simply converted uniform devises from the regiment, and were available in the tuck shops. Many, if not all of the battalions and regiments had this type of inspirational badge. As the war wore on, many of the givers were lost, and did not return. Consequently, these items became very cherished by their recipients. Therefore they are generally called sweethearts?
