I think he is ASC and I think that it's probably his cap the girl is holding.

I think the signaller does have a darker OS chevron below the other four. That would tally with the medal ribbon which appears to be for the 1914 Star. I think the man to the right of the girl...

The girl seated at the front is holding a cap with an Army Service Corps cap badge on it, the cap presumably belonging to one of the men.

Perhaps you should have chosen a different article as a reference. I won't be making any apologies to anyone.

There is nothing wrong with the question at all, it is the article that is referred to in the opening post that I find out of order. This is a badge forum after all, not a general "Soap Box".

They would have worn the badges of the RIASC. However, I don't see the point of the question unless it involves the playing of the race card which it clearly does appear to. I prefer to see Dunkirk...

I believe those girls in the photo served as ambulance drivers at the military hospital on Cannock Chase. The one badged as RE was probably attached to the military railway in the same location.

I very much doubt the WRAC part is as late as 1960. The large number of WW2 Bedford O type 3 tonners and Austin K2 ambulances present make it highly unlikely. The presence of the Ford Thames E4...

The WRAC cap badges are the KC pattern, the breast badges are the 1949-53 pattern RASC collar badge. I would date that film to around 1953 to 1955.

That's a possibility. I thought possibly a civilian padre, I believe some of them were honorary chaplains to the forces. Or maybe one of the girls from the MBBBSCO.
