A very rare lapel badge for Civil Defence Region XII South Eastern Region sold on eBay for nearly £50. I'd not seen anything like this badge before and thought it might have gone for considerably more. Region 12 was based in Tunbridge Wells and covered Kent as well as East and West Sussex.
A recent blog covered the 12 regions and their headquarters' locations.
Update: Jon Mills was kind enough to share this photo of the Region XII's Regional Commissioner's chauffeuse wearing an identical badge on her side cap.
