302 Inf Bde

302 Infantry Brigade (British)

Can I clarify your terminology please.
To me, a woven badge is one where the pattern is formed at the time of weaving using different colours in the war and weft.

An embroidered badge is one...

Trade badge

From the small split pins I would have thought this badge was Australian, but I cannot see it listed in John Perryman's 'Kit Muster' publication.

Home Front helmets

The black helmet was worn by Civil Defence members who were allowed to be members of both CD and Home Guard. I believe that camouflage nets were worn over them operationally. This was to negate the...

Mitre

Chigwell School CCF used to wear a Mitre, but I'm not aware of them using a bullion version. It might be connected to the school itself though.
