    Default 1944 British Battledress - Unidentified badge

    Hello, I have in my collection a 1944 dated British Battledress in a nice large size (13) which has an unfortunate ink stain down the front where a fountain pen has obviously leaked! I resisted the temptation to clean it up as it is easily covered up with a leather jerkin or webbing. My question is - Does anybody know what the badge represents? Given that it is also badged 'Royal Artillery' I assume that it is home defences. Can anybody enlighten me as to which company/unit the original owner belonged too and what their role may have been?
    Many thanks

    Hold on, can you get a close-up of the ribbons? I think i might see a Norwegian medal there.

    Ah, i was wrong, i thought the 1939-45 star with oakleaves looked like a Norwegian medal from a distance.
