Default Brussels Leave Hostels Shoulder Title

Hello,

Does anyone have some information on this shoulder title?
It's made of very thin red-orange cloth.
Thank you!

Cheers,
FX Dutoy

Brussels Leave Hostels shoulder title.
locally machine made shoulder, for the Brussels Leave Hostels of the British Liberation Army.Brussels was liberated in Sept 1944, and was ideal for giving servicemen a respite from the frontline. Shoulder title worn by largely female staff both local and provided by NAAFI. Evidence of having been removed from a uniform, good condition.
Well, you learn something everyday!

EDIT: Sorry, posted at same time as Rockape

Thank you both for the quick replies!
Great information.

PS to Brigade Piron, my late father was a Piron 1944-45
