    The Penny A Week Badges. These were sold to people who were donating a penny a week to raise money to send care packages to British soldiers and their allies in POW camps and on the front line.

    And my latest purchase which is in the post, a proficiency in anti-gas training. I have also ordered a proficiency in ARP training dated 1943. These are all named which makes them better in my opinion.

    I think so too.

    I have an odd item or two of these and Lez has a Red Cross cap, very similar to the ATS cap in design.
    Cheers, Ade.
