The Dutch Labour Service had its own Sports Badge which, to be retained, had to be competed for annually. It is in the form of a shield measuring 33mm by 39mm, which shows the badge of the Labour Service, a spade between ears of barley and the motto “Ick dien” I Serve. To this is added an “S” on the spade. It is in one class only, silver, which in fact is natural coloured white metal. It was worn on the left breast pocket of the Labour Service uniform.
