    Hiya, Officers uniforms tend to survive more than Other Ranks uniforms as they were privatly purchased and so remained private property and so they were taken home when the officer left the Army.

    I agree with you re prices!

    I will try and find some pics of Officers on duty for you.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Hi Lez,

    I didn't know that. I thought both enlisted and officers were allowed to keep their uniforms.
    With WAAF I see more other ranks than officers, a complete revearsal. Maybe I happened to see more other rank ones

    Look forward to seeing those pics

    Hiya, yes, Other Ranks were allowed to keep the uniform too. I think that the class system aspect does come into play here, Officers tended to come from better off backgrounds and could afford to hang up the uniform in the wardrobe and not use it again for other things.

    Cheers, Lez.

    Excellent group of uniforms. I have 2 questions. What does ATS stand for and also what do the red chevrons on the lower sleeve stand for?
    Thanks and hope you heal up quickly!!!
