An original WW1 British army issue armlet, this was part of the Derby scheme, these were produced for wear by volunteers for wear with civilian clothes to show that they were ready to fight if called upon. This one is in excellent condition and has clearly been used which is really part of its character as it shows wear to the surface knap around the edges and folds and the inside shows dirt again from use all those years ago, the material is all in excellent condition with just a few very minor surface moth nips which really do not show up and are very minor, the rear is complete with its original odd metal buttons, the inside is faintly marked with the Army Council ink stamping which reads “ Issued Under The Authority of The Army Council” it also has an issue number.
