Hi Alex & Ben, Thanks for your input, this one is really puzzling me. Can the Red and Blue shield really be the same as that shown in the B&W photo?
I am planning to put together a small collection of items reflecting my Dad's time in the Army, to go along side those of his brother Will's RAF items. Both served in late 1944, my Dad on the ground in France, Belgium and Holland and Will 'overhead as it were' as a W/Op in Lancasters. Dave S.
