Donation pin for Medical Supplies to the Soviet Union

Flag_of_AustraliaDuring WW2 there were a large number of public appeals for funds to purchase goods, food and medical supplies to be sent to the Soviet Union to alleviate the suffering of civilians caught in the Soviet-German War. Many of these appeals were organised by trade unions or by local Communist organisations. This badge acknowledges a 1 shilling donation to one of these appeals in Australia and is marked “Medical Aid And Comforts To Russia”.
