As a rule 141RAC didn't wear the RTR arm badge. I know there was a certain amount of illicit wear of the badge around the army and the RTR did try to police it from what I can gather.

Thatís a nice set even with the caveats you mention, nice to have the id tags. Not uncommon to have an RAC badged photo amongst a soldierís effects, their first uniform photo.

Leigh,

I'd say you've got something there, the cap badges were 'silvered' it seems sometime in 1942 or 1943 so adding a WO's 'special' would fall in line with that.

The third tank is an A9, quite unusual to see one of those fitted with a Sunshield, could have been a depot vehicle being used as a test-bed perhaps.
