5 varieties of the Physical Strength badge, issued by the Ministry of Health.
One is dated 2601 [1941] and two more 2600 [1940]--one of the latter was found
in the original paper envelope. This envelope has the date, the name of the badge,
the class 'beginner level' and 'Ministry of Health.'

The other two are undated. One is made of cloth with a paper backing. I have no
idea if this is an early version or a very late one.
