    Found thise item at the flee market, thise morning.
    Is there any chance to find out who captain J.W. Winckworth and luitenant W.H. Green and what it was given for to the men and officers of the Belgian army at Deinze?
    There seem to have been stamps on the rear, but they fade away...

    The badge appears to be for WWII Royal Engineers
    - or Army Service Corps. It's a start.........

    The coloured backing for the badge is RE. As the name of the captain is quite unusual a search of the London gazette might produce something.

    He was granted a temporary commission in Jan 1941

    and then in 1945 he resigned his commission with the regular army and was granted the honourary rank of captain

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.
