Copper alloy badge. Cast openwork uniform badge, comprising the letters MGC, for Machine Gun Corps. This was formed in 1915, as the importance of the new weapon became appreciated, and had a training depot at Belton Park, Grantham. The corps served in all theatres, and had an unenviably high casualty rate, even by the grim standard of the First World War, being known as the 'Suicide Club' to its members. The corps was disbanded in 1920. Suggested date: Modern, 1915-1920 Length: 43.6mm, Height: 16.9mm, Thickness: 1.8mm, Weight: 4.91gms
