The Eastleigh Group Rucksack Badge was produced in 2001 and is just 2

A new stock was ordered following a decision by the Executive Committee on 14 April 2004 and they are now available from Bob Battle, 21 Hookwater Road, Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh SO53 5PQ; at a cost of 2 per badge. Send Bob  a cheque  made payable to "The Eastleigh Group of the Ramblers' Association" and a stamp addressed envelope.
The design is by Colin Cobbold and was selected after a competition amongst members. It features a steam railway engine wheel because of Eastleigh's history as a railway junction town and major engine and repair workshops and tucked into the wheel is a footpath signpost, walking boots and a compass.
