Default Navy and Army Canteen Board WW1

Does anyone have an example of the cloth title worn by the NACB on uniform?

I believe it was simply the initials NACB.

I am compiling the next issue of the Military Heraldry Society's journal The Formation Sign which will mark 100 years of NAAFI and will include details of their predecessors the Canteen Board and Expeditionary Forces Canteens.

A scan of the NACB title if anyone has one would be much appreciated.

Jon

The EFI title is fine. I've had my example for over 40 years.

Hello Tim,
It is white metal and I was led to believe it was for Army & Navy stores(NAAFI) I have not found any information to confirm this so I am keeping it there until I find a definite answer.
