    I have had this uniform for some time now. I have tried various sites to no avail in researching this. Just trying to find info on the M.B.E and bomb disposal badge. I found the griffon patch in the pocket as well.

    The Bow badge is Anti-Aircraft Command (first pattern) , and the Lion is Scottish Home Command , these I believe are both post war . The tunic may have been rebadged by the owner in the early post war years , IMHO
