Early ATS Officers rank insignia

Article about: Hiya, in the early days of the ATS, Officers did not wear conventional rank "pips". Instead they wore these specially designed rank stars. The first issues were Bronze as seen here

    I've not seen many of these. Does anyone know what rank wore these?

    Sorry, these are not ATS rank insignia. No idea what they are?

    Cheers, Lez.

    I thought these were the early plain wreath pre february 1940 ones before the crown coronet ones?

    Cannot see the front of the badge. Can you upload to the forum please?

    I have heard of this from "The Times" of Sept 30th 1939 but never seen an image.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cheers Ade,

    What do you think, is this used by the early ATS possibly other services too?

    I don't know. But the pattern of the wreath is certainly very similar to the cap badge.

    If it is early ATS we are looking at a very narrow time frame of just 6 months and that is the problem.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The person who sold it to me on ebay years ago say it is ATS officer that predated the coronet. If it is only 6 months that is rare indeed.

    I think the description suppose to mean a Chief Commandant is equivelent to a Major General. Correction I meant Lt Colonel
