No image available but a British World War 2 qualification/trade badge worn on Battledress: an Upper Case letter K with a wreath. Perhaps Army Kinematographic Service?

Pour memoire - as they say.
Nothing exceptional about this title - except that it was worn on D-Day, 6 June 1944 by a French Commamdo JNCO, LCpl Guyader, ex 10 (Inter Allied) Cdo.
