This submarine brooch would have been given to the girl-friend or wife of a submariner. Unlike traditional regiments, there was no specific regimental badge, so miniature submarines were substituted. The design registry number stamped on the back show that the design was registered at the Design Registry Office at Kew, England, in 1916.

The submarine is quite accurately reproduced in miniature.  This particular one is 15ct.  The majority were 9ct, for poorly paid sailors on modest incomes.  We used to be able to find one of these approximately once a year, but this is the first one I have seen for years, so most of them have found good homes in submariner's families, or in collections of submarinalia.
