Default Today's market finds

Hi all,

I've picked these up on my local market today, all the size of a 1p piece. I know the ATC one and the red cross economy one but I haven't seen the wheel one before.

I'm assuming it's something to do with the drivers of the FANY, would anyone agree? Has anyone else seen one before?

Thanks for the help.

Michael

Hi Michael,
It's for the Mechanised Transport Corps.
Sam, driver in "Foyle's War" TV series, wore it.
Cheers, Tinto

Hi,

Not my field, but I believe the first badge in your photo is a lapel badge for the Mechanised Transport Corps Auxiliary Member, as opposed to the MTC: Mechanised Transport Corps or the MTTC: Mechanised Transport Training Corps.

Regards,

Zob.
