So these are pretty cool. They are a tiny bit ‘Carry on’ like. I just love the artwork.
They are 1 inch badges (tin) that were made in the 1960s and 1970s. These ones created by Jemah novelties of Torquay, Devon and The Taw Valley Company of Ilfracombe, Devon.
Brilliantly cheeky / Naive artwork that I’m sure would feature on many a badge hat. Seems that Jemah and co made a ton of these things for tourist spots, zoos and anywhere of interest, mainly covering the south west. Love em.

Perranporth – Surf Riding – She is having a bit more fun.
Bude – Cornwall – This girl is having the time of her life. I reckon she had a decent lunch.
