The Australian Naval Auxiliary Patrol unit and badges are detailed in 'Kit Muster' by John Perryman.
NZ had a NAPS and only one badge to denote service which they wore on the cuff in the same way as the RNR and RNVR rating badges.

The RSA was originally the Returned Services Association it was not until the 90's (I think) the they changed the name to Returned AND Services Association.

Queen carnivals were a popular way of fund raising and lasted until the 1950's at least. Groups of like minded organisations would band together, nominate a queen and raise funds on her behalf. Groups like the Commercial Travellers Association, the RSA, the Retail Association etc. I also have a 1945 RNZAF RSA Queen Carnival pennant.

I wasn't sure when the name changed , there is information about when the original Returned Soldiers Association started accepting all service personel and 'adjusted' their title (1941/42) but couldn't see why or when the "and" was added.

The RNR Commanders jacket is named to Winton.
He served on HMS Glenroy (landing ship) during Operation Neptune and then HMS Eaglet which was a DEMS training establishment.
