Small round badge with the slogan 'You Can't Hide from a Neutron Bomb', circa 1960s-1980s. This is one of a series of badges and peace movement posters acquired by the museum following the exhibition 'Peace: an Exhibition' which explored the Peace movement and was part of the Victorian Government contribution to International Year of Peace in 1986. The badges explore the peace movement, nuclear disarmament and Hiroshima.

The design of this badge was probably conceived by the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. This was a British anti-nuclear initiative formed in 1957 that became one of the most influential bodies in the disarmament movement. Their logo later became the international symbol for peace.
