Trident is a nuclear submarine-launched missile system operated by the United Kingdom that was anounced in 1980 and began operations in 1994. The Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament was founded in 1957 and became one of the biggest peace movements worldwide. They were and still are spearheding the opposition to the Trident programme. This badge displays a symbol of a trident merging into a CND logo, that later also beacame the international peace sign. This badge is part of an enormous collection of political badges assembled by the donor in his years of political student activism in Melbourne.
