Default 3rd AGRA curiosity

A recent acquisition. Is there any reason personnel of the 3rd AGRA would need a locally made example? Jon Mills (p.1006 and item 4971) shows only an ordnance issue type printed sign.

Possibly made by one of the Girls, they were known for it.

The Girls in the Auxiliary Territorial Service that served in some of the RA units were known to over stich the issued printed badges or produce their own.
