            Afternoon All,

            A scarcity indeed, and all the more wonderful to see it as a result. Thank you, High Wood.

            How clear are the officer's collar badges on close-up?

              Sadly, not particularly clear.

                  Many thanks, High Wood.

                  So the officer on the left appears to be wearing 'V' collars. Would this be for the Volunteer Force?

                  The collar badges of the officer on the right appear to be ACC collars. Would that be correct for this unit?

                    To my eyes they look more like T. Perhaps Territorials collars?

                      They are definitely T for Territorial collar badges. The other officer's collar badges appear to be smaller versions of the cap badge.
