I'm researching the Battles of Ypres at present. An interesting side-track is the award of the so-called "Butterfly Badge" as a Badge of Honour to units that had displayed extreme bravery as a unit. A Coy 8th Glosters were awarded theirs in August 1917, following actions which had resulted in two VCs. A Fd Coy RE also received the honour, I cannot recall which. The badge was a red silk butterfly shape. I am afraid that is all the data I have but if anyone has more I'd be interested to hear it. L/Cpl Edward Salmon from my home village served in the bn. and was killed in March 1918. We will be dropping by to visit him on our pilgrimage.
