You are viewing a WWII era sweetheart pendant. This pendant is made of clear celluloid material, with a small crown above the Albatross insignia inserted into the pendant material. Some have concluded that these pendants were made from the material used for the cockpits of the WWII aircraft. With the albaross bird, this could also signify a Pathfinder, as the giver. The really unique feature of this sweetheart pendant is its heart shape. This item is still in excellent condition for its age. View scans for details.

Sweetheart badges and pins were often given to a female loved one, by their soldier lover, son, or father. They could have been supplied, for a cost, by the quartermaster or by a private organization, such as Birks. Most were simply converted uniform devises from the regiment, and were available in the tuck shops. Many, if not all of the battalions and regiments had this type of inspirational badge. As the war years rolled on, many of the givers were lost, and did not return. As you might imagine, these items became a very cherished remembrance by their recipients. Consequently, we generally call them "sweethearts".

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning

We will remember them.
