A Bury Fire Brigade cap badge from the post war period from 1948

.Bury Fire Brigade was very small with just 1 station covering 12 square miles & reformed after The 1947 Fire Services Act returned fire control from the National Fire Service (N.F.S.) back to regional county & county borough control. Bury was a small county borough in the county of Lancashire & in 1974 was merged into the Lancashire Fire Brigade!
There are 3 variations of Bury cap badge to collect from this era, the first is the chrome pattern we have here but there is also a gilt variation & another variation on a smaller home office star!
Still with only one station the cap badges from Bury are desireable to collectors & as time wears on these badges will become difficult to find in original condition!

This variation is the chrome enamel 2mm centre set on a fully pressed home office star & the enamel is in excellent condition. A fine cap badge to grace any good fire service cap badge collection, a shield & scroll type badge rather than the more common “red ring” variations!
This Bury Fire Brigade  chrome rnamel, small star cap badge manufactured by Mike Trueman Badges of Birmingham has the enamel centre fitted to the rarer small fully pressed Home Office star, both cap fixing lugs intact to the rear of the cap badge..
