Default Far East Nurse 'skirt' - RARE INSIGNIA

A friend has recently acquired this Indian 'skirt' from the family of a nurse who served in the Far East - While we swelter in the heat I thought members here may be interested to see it ... even though it may caused additional salivation ... It may provide some entertainment trying to identify them all

To my eye, some highlights include Indian Field Broadcasting Units - so rare that Len Whittaker wrote to inform me he has misidentified a Newfoundland badge (Caribou head) as insignia of the unit (Some Talk of Private Armies item 46) His notes (p.58) appear to suggest the unit only had a strength of four platoons.

Also an unrecorded item of V Force insignia

No doubt you will find further rare items.

Any comments welcome
