History and use
The International Red Cross maintains a tradition of rewarding blood donors with such things as stickers, certificates, badges, key rings and tie pins. For some people who choose to make regular donations over a long period of time, these rewards become collectible mementos of their years of service. The Queensland Museum’s Red Cross collection includes examples of these keepsakes from Australia and around the world. This ‘Life Member’ lapel badge was made in France and features Arabic inscriptions.
