Mike many thanks for your help Like you Thought it may be dental related .To keep me sane in look down I've been collecting to the dental services of the R.N and R A F
For the navy I have found ,the following trade badges

Dental Hygienist I have two variations -there are quite a number
Dental Surgery Assistant 3 variation again a number of variations
Dental Nurse [D N ] none as yet
My son is a surgeon commander [medical ] but no point asking him

R A F only collars found from an excellent album on the forum

As stated above the Red Cross with 'D' below was indeed the badge of a 'Sick Berth Attendant (Dental Attendant)'. It was used from 1949 as previously said and stopped being worn in 1965 - just in case you wanted to know exactly when it was in use!
