Default Royal Indian Army Service Corps: Dunkirk

What insignia would these Indian troops have worn at Dunkirk?

They would have worn the attached badges while in France.

On the same topic, was anyone here able to attend / see / hear the presentation at the IWM on the topic of the RIASC at Dunkirk. I'm really hoping there will be some sort of summary made available of the author's work. Thanks.

Peter

Hullo Peter,

I presume you are referring to the NAM talk? See: https://www.nam.ac.uk/whats-on/india...gent-dunkirk-0
The book is now available online: The Indian Contingent : The Forgotten Muslim Soldiers of Dunkirk by Ghee Bowman.

Cheers!

I found the talk online and listened to parts of it. Not a gifted natural speaker but very interesting material indeed. I'll check this out.
