Hi Alan,

Hi Alan,

Not Newcastle, but Chester. See: http://www.925-1000.com/dlChester.html

The maker was Bacon & Bill (Charles Walter Bacon & Frank Bill) of 37-39, Hylton Street, Birmingham. It's difficult to make out the date letter, is it an 'X'?

Then it is likely 1923.

No, no connection, the swastika is an ancient good luck symbol with a long history of being applied to jewellery.

If you put the word 'swastika' into the search box (top right-hand corner), you will see many examples.
