Railway Armbands were worn to denote a worker of some additional importance or as an identifying badge to gain access to controlled areas. As the name suggests, they were generally worn between the elbow and shoulder and affixed with an adjustable leather strap and buckle. In pre-grouping days, they were usually made from brass, curved to fit snugly around the upper arm. Later, many companies adopted enamel but followed the same style of curvature with fixing straps. Cloth examples followed  and both styles invariably had company initials incorporated in the wording. Both enamel and cloth perpetuated into BR days. The latter generally having double straps to affix to the arm.  The L&NWR were prolific users of many types of Armband and  these are extremely collectable. Those bearing the station location are much sought after and  discerning collectors find extremely desirable.
