Re. the brassard, I'm told that post the UN IPTF era in BiH British civilian staff were granted military ranks in line with their civilian status and afforded entry to officer's messes.
I'm advised that some "acted like landed gentry and would tell everyone their military rank and would write their 'rank' on their doors, books, etc"

First I've heard of the practise.
So, perhaps the brassard was worn by such personnel granted the status of "Major".
