    Default Superb ATS grouping

    Heres some pictures of my ATS uniform i picked up recently.
    First off is the service jacket and skirt.Both are dated 1943 and comes with all the original insignia and lanyard.'my girl' was in the Anti-aircraft division throughout the war.Does anyone know what the black diamond patch is?Interestingly there is a 1st anti-aircraft division patch sewn inside the jacket?The skirt is a tiny 12inch waist!(measured flat)

    And finally a close up of the christmas cards.both are dated 1943.
    im afraid i dont know much about her.She was in the ATS for most of ww2 before she got injured overseas and invalided out.She is still alive and in her 90's.She is also tiny!Her sweetheart was in RAF and went down in the english channel during D-day and was never found.Thats as much as i know at the moment.More items are still turning up.I am trying to contact her brother in law for more information.
    All the items are marked with her name and service number and most are dated 1942-43.talk about bringing history to life!Out of interest what would this group be worth?Thanks for looking.
    Oh, i also have a photo of her in this uniform

    This ia a very nice grouping My wife Lez ("Larissa" here on the forum) is a keen ATS collector.

    No idea on the black diamond shaped insignia, but I would tend to think it is a local group designation?

    Cheers, Ade.
