Quote-The NAAFI brooch was worn on the brown and orange work attire by female NAAFI staff in bars, restaurants and shops; the eagle being specific for staff on RAF stations.
They were still worn in the 1980s but became obsolete when NAAFI change their logo-quote.

Although I do not doubt this, these brooches were made with a queens crown on top as NAAFI staff could be moved to any area Navy, Army or RAF.
My thinking is that the owner when posted/started work(dependant) at a RAF NAAFI establishment choose to have the brooch modified.
This is of course my theory.
