As I said in the initial post, the badge was "something like the Lincolnshire or West Yorkshire Regiments, but not quite right" - the scroll being the wrong shape. The West Yorkshire Regiment should...

I agree it looks something like a West Yorkshire badge, but the scroll is different, with two down-facing ends - perhaps one of the battalions had a slightly-different badge?

I am still not entirely sure of the relationship (if any) between the FANY and the ATS. Marian Gamwell, head of the FANYs, was under considerable pressure from Helen Gwynne-Vaughan to merge her unit...

Thank you Roger - That is more or less what I have been thinking, and is as good an explanation as any. i have just realised that Honeysuckle Weeks, in her role as "Sam" in Foyle's War, wears her...

Many thanks for your prompt reply - something to do with the Bengal links of the former East India Company regiments I suppose? The badge, as a matter of interest, is a modern replica!

Royal Dublin Fusiliers

This is not so much of a mystery, more of a simple question. This is clearly the Dublin Fusiliers cap badge, but what is the cat-like animal supposed to be - a tiger or a lion?

I am unsure if these are "old" or "modern" badges. If they are modern, could there be a link to the Green Jackets after they absorbed the Oxon & Bucks - here is their cap badge.

I would think the red-on-blue badge was worn by someone in the 6th Bn Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, as the badge is in the Ox & Bucks Lt Infty collection.

If the dagger is a Roman "I" between the "X" and the "V" it starts to make sense - I could not make out how a 15th Army was involved. If these badges were locally made, that would also explain these...

Unknown Cloth Badge

I came across this cloth badge the other day as part of a collection of items relating to the 6th Bn Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry in Burma. It looks a bit foreign to me?
