A city on the south coast of England in Hampshire, this famous maritime city had 2 (two) different cap badges for the post war period, this 1st pattern “shield & scroll” badge was worn between 1948 & 1964. The red ring version City Of Southampton cap badge being worn for just 10 years & both cap badges for this small county borough fire brigade are desirable in original condition! 

Southampton Fire Brigade had 3 (three) stations covering 15 (fifteen) square miles, there wasn’t large numbers of original cap badges produced. Like many hard to obtain, original, smaller county borough fire brigade cap badges these original Southampton cap badges are sought after as demand grows from younger & newer collectors. Many good examples are already in private collections & reproductions have been produced. Original badges were produced by Firmin & Son’s London & this original 1st pattern cap badge of Southampton Fire Brigade is a Firmin example in used condition. There is some enamel damage to the scroll & is common amongst these particular Southampton Fire Brigade cap badges, the problem being the length of the scroll being the culprit, a common fault with longer scrolled badges that overlap the chrome home office star beneath it!
Otherwise a genuine used & issued, original Southampton Fire Brigade 1948 to 1964 cap badge in overall good condition.
