Sweetheart brooch

Brooch shaped like two hearts, with inscription

During both world wars 'sweetheart' brooches were given by servicemen to loved ones left behind. These could take the form of a miniature version of the regimental badge, sometimes gem set, or perhaps an ensign, aircraft or wings. 'Sweetheart' jewellery today is very collectable.


'The Lord watch between me & thee when we are absent one from another'

From the King's Regiment collection at the Museum of Liverpool.

Accession number 60.203.152
