Unfortunately it is very difficult to find out information on individual Bevin Boys as only 10% of the records exist, mainly from the Midlands region. However,  I do welcome your thoughts and comments on the website.

Bevin Boy Veteran Badge

 

Badge can be issued to men who were conscripted directly into the mines, those who opted for mine work in preference to joining the Armed Forces, or those who were in the Armed Forces and volunteered to become miners during the period 1942-1948.

The Bevin Boys scheme was introduced in 1942 by the then Minister for Labour and National Service, Ernest Bevin. The scheme ran between 1942 and 1948 and involved recruiting men to work in coal mines during and immediately following World War 2.

 

The badge is available to all surviving Bevin Boys and formally recognises their work in the UK coalfields during and immediately after World War II. The badge can only be issued posthumously to the widows of men who died on or after 20 June 2007 and fall into the above category.

 

The application form for the badge can be found here:

Or you can contact the Department of Energy and climate change who  administer the badge
