Lancashire and Cheshire Coal Owners' Rescue Station

"This wooden shield is a replica of the lapel badge and was painted by Arthur Cunliffe (Permanent Corps) in 1932. It was positioned over the Board Room fireplace at Boothstown Rescue Station when operations were transferred in 1933. It remained in this location until the Station closed in 1994. The actual lapel badge was just over 1 inch diameter and the replica shield was 12 inches diameter. The certificate measured 16 inches by 12 inches."
