Lewis Badges Ltd., London.  Civil Air Guard  (CAG) lapel badge in white metal with enamelled lettering.  Pin rear fixing.  The CAG was formed in July 1938 as a way of increasing the number of people holding a pilots licence.

All CAG uniform and insignia are now scarce as the organisation was relatively small and short lived.  Excellent condition.  Stock code U23868.
