A Veteran's Badge being proudly worn on a lapel.

Veteran’s Badges are issued to all former Service personnel whn they leave the Armed Forces. First issued in 2004, the badge is an enamelled, engraved, and pinned, lapel badge featuring the words “HM Armed Forces – Veteran”, which encompass the Tri-Service, Anchor, Crossed Swords and Eagle motif. Its symbolism is intended to unite all veterans in recognising the commonality of their service, to encourage a sense of unity and community between surviving veterans and to ignite public recognition of our veterans and their continuing contribution to society.
