During WWII most women wore a small lapel badge miniature of RAF wings or Regimental badge of their husbands/boyfriends unit; these were called ‘sweetheart badges’.

As the original wings issued to airmen were manufactured from cloth and not metal, sweetheart wings were commonly produced by local jewellers and sold to airmen, who subsequently gave them to their sweethearts. These wings were often silver or enamelled and quite beautiful in their own right.
