Commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Great Pilgrimage, with this simple yet effective lapel pin. Finished in a Gold enamel detail with a pin fastening.
This lapel pin was developed as part of our Great Pilgrimage 90 range. The range was designed to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the 1928 Great Pilgrimage.
A decade after the end of the First World War, veterans and war widows visited the battlefields of the Somme and Ypres before marching to the Menin Gate in Ypres on 8th August 1928.
Exactly 90 years later, thousands of Legion members will recreate the 1928 Great Pilgrimage to visit the same battlefields and then, on 8th August 2018, carry their standards along the same route to the Menin Gate, to commemorate the centenary of the start of the last 100 days of the First World War.
