    I think the real experts have it nailed down, but I don't think anyone picked up that WLA was Women's Land Army....the Land Girls who worked on farms, keeping the farmers happy (but not always the farmers' wives). A good WW2 collectible.

    As we have some experts tuned in, can anyone tell me what (WW2) unit wore a royal blue shield patch with three golden wheatsheaves?

    Something to do with Cheshire, I guess, as this is basicaly the design of the WW1 badge of the Cheshire Volunteer Regiment.

    Any help appreciated and Happy New Year to all.

    The three wheatsheves on blue background is the 102 Transport Column RASC. Not sure of date used. Look it up on google, John.

    Hi, John:

    Many thanks for the ID. A Birkenhead outfit so that makes sense.

    I still haven't dated the patch but you've given me a good starting point.

    All the best,

    I am pretty sure that they were a post WWII T.A. unit, John.
