As the na­tion marks 100 years since the end of the First World War the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion has pro­duced a spe­cial brooch to say thank you for the con­tri­bu­tion made by women in war.

Women played a huge role in the war ef­fort and demon­strated that they were the phys­i­cal and in­tel­lec­tual equal of men, from be­ing nurses in field hos­pi­tals to work­ing in dan­ger­ous mu­ni­tions fac­to­ries.

All prof­its raised from the sale of the brooches will go di­rectly to the Royal Bri­tish Le­gion and their im­por­tant work, sup­port­ing the Armed Forces com­mu­nity to­day.

The brooch is avail­able from The Royal Bri­tish Le­gion’s of­fi­cial on­line shop pop­ for £29.99.
