    Cap badge would have been the same basic design but made of bronze metal.

    The other chap wears the Service Dress jacket as opposed to the 1937 pattern Battledress worn by everyone else.

    At this stage in the war, only Officers were allowed to wear ties with the BD blouse pressed open at the neck.

    Cheers, Ade.
