I want to say 'veterans' group' for the VE - AMF badge. Just a tickle in the back of the memory but nothing I can pin down yet.

Hello,

do you have an idea of the origin of the embroidered badge ?

to note that in the french navy, AMF stands for 'Atelier Militaire de la Flotte'
Established in 1945, this speciality is for arsenal workshop engineers ;
find below the trade badge ...

for VE ? investigation in progress .......
