WWII WRNS Royal Marines Cap

She isn't wearing a beret. She is wearing the standard 1942 issue Wren's cap. Nice picture though.

The cypher GRI

Sorry, but your point is?

King George VI DID die on 6th February 1952.

What has my statement got to do with the image you posted? Good image though.

Looks like the flash worn by Rhodesian volunteers serving with the Royal Air Force (RAF) during World war II.

It's the badge of the old London Division Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. But I have no idea what it's actually on.
