Metal lapel pin of the United Fire Brigades Association.
Bears a fire fighter holding a hose flanked by two crests and the letters 'NZ'.

Stippled edge around which are the words 'UNITED FIRE BRIGADES ASSOCIATION'

The bottom of the badge has a red background on which are the words: 'LIFE MEMBER'.

The back is stamped E R Cakebread. (The R will refer to the fact that everyone knew him as 'Rick', although this is a slight error as his middle name was Eric, so it should have read E E Cakebread).

Awarded to Edward Eric ('Rick') Cakebread on 12th May 1977, after he had served for over 25 years with the Waikanae Fire Service.
