Badge - Limbless Soldiers Association, Fundraising, Victoria, 1928 Numismatics Reg. No: NU 45683

Summary:
Fundraising badge issued by the Limbless Soldiers Association, Victoria, in 1928.

The Limbless Soldiers Association existed from at least 1915, during World War I, when it made representations to the Federal Government regarding the preservation of jobs of limbless soldiers, and the 'compulsory' employment of a percentage of disabled ex-soldiers by large employers. It also argued that limbless soldiers' associations should be regarded as charitable organisations for the purpose of donations. Limbless soldiers' associations were set up in many states, including Victoria.
