ARTIFACT: 1950's vintage United Kingdom Transatlantic Brides and Parents Association member badge. The center of the badge shows a ship on the ocean and an aircraft flying the sky between North America and Europe and the outer, dark blue ring shows the letters: "T • B • P • A". The reverse shows a maker's mark that reads: "PATTORINI & SONS BARR ST. B'HAM". The TBPA was founded in the late 1940's when men were leaving Britain for America after WWII – the association assisted parents and daughters of GI's in making the transition to America and united them with other daughters and parents for support.
