Headdress badge (converted very professionally to a sweetheart brooch)with' a cartouche on the rear reading 'Sterling' with a second cartouche with the letters TLM (assuming manufacturer?). Given to men who volunteered for the first four City Pals battalions of the King's (Liverpool Regiment) before 16 October 1914. This was given as a personal gift from Lord Derby, who recruited these units. They became the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th Battalions of the Regiment.
This is a beautiful example, cast silver (not HM) with a pin backing. The silver badge shows an eagle with a child in a basket above a ducal crown. The child is covered in a swaddling wrap. Underneath is a scroll with the motto SANS CHANGER (Constant).
The eagle and child are taken from the heraldic crest of the Stanleys, the Earls of Derby which shows the eagle and child in its mediaeval form. His motto 'Sans changer' was also adopted by the Liverpool Pals. The Liverpool Pals battalions served in 89th Brigade until 1918, part of 30th Division which was the first of the Pals Divisions.
This is a beautiful white metal base with brooch pin with a brass scroll attached (looks like the scroll is an addition (could have any number of words stamped!)). There is what looks like a crease or crack just before the 'A'. The whole is attached to a silk and card backing. This looks like the inner of a presentation box!
