New rare token of love discovered at Submarine Museum

A rare ladies submarine brooch has been discovered at the Museum.  This delicate brooch is thought to have been specially commissioned for a serving submarine officer to give to his sweetheart.  The newly discovered brooch, dated 1909 is made of solid silver by Liberty’s and is reminiscent of a C class submarine.

George Malcolmson, Archivist, said, “I would think that this brooch is pretty unique probably ordered by a submarine officer for his wife or girlfriend”

“I have never seen another one like this. It is a remarkable piece of jewellery and I would love to know more about the story behind it”

It was common for submariners to make their own tokens of love for sweethearts during the duller periods on patrol. Often many such objects were made from silver spoons “borrowed” from the Wardroom.
