Badge – Old Contemptibles Association
Old Contemptibles Association badge. The Old Contemptibles Association was founded on the 25 June 1925 with membership limited to veterans of the British Expeditionary Force who served in France and Flanders between 5 August to 22 November 1914. The Association took its name from a notorious Order of the Day issued by the Kaiser in August 1914 which referred disparagingly to Sir John French’s ‘contemptible little army’.
