Welcome to The Fovant Badges

The Fovant Badges Society is a voluntary organisation, which has the objective of maintaining the regimental badges that were carved into the chalk downs above the village of Fovant by the soldiers of those regiments. The Society is determined that the Badges shall remain an historic, fitting and truly visible memorial to the soldiers who passed through Fovant and its neighbouring villages on their way to the Great War, many never to return. We hope this website provides you a background to the history of the Badges from their creation to the present day. Please remember we are a registered charity relying entirely on voluntary contributions to undertake our work.

If you would like to help the maintenance of the Fovant Badges please visit our charity donation website: https://mydonate.bt.com/charities/fovantbadgessociety - Any contribution would be most welcome.
