    Nice piece, but a bit of a shame too. The Infantry Works badges are very scarce and worth some significant coin. As is, not so much.

    I just came across this small souvenir spoon, from Camp Hughes in 1916, the detail in the middle of the handle are of shaking hands, my pics are terrible I will replace them with some better images
