Mines Rescue Service Badge

"On completion of the Initial Rescue Training Course at Rescue Stations since 1947, the NCB lapel badge was also given at the end of the training course. When there was an incident at a colliery and it was possible to close off all entry to that colliery, only authorized personnel were allowed to enter the colliery premises. When a part-time rescue worker had been called in and presented himself at a neighbouring colliery for emergency work underground, his lapel badge would act as sufficient ID to allow him to pass through the security."
