Hi Rob,

I'm not aware that there were different coloured hat bands, at least not officially. Are the colours not just manufacturers variations of khaki?

VADs probably wore a different colour band on their blue hats, I can't remember now.

Keith I thought the Red Cross,Nurse and VAD had there own coloured bands so the Khaki was a standard band used like the pugaree I guess?

Will have a look and see what I can find. An old VAD veteran gave me her uniform and insignia years ago and I think there might be a hat band included.
