  2. Looks like Royal Artillery.

    I presume that the badge backing is in RA colours of red and blue, but could be wrong.

    Precisely which battery had this dress peculiarity I don't know, but I'm sure someone here can help.

  3. Fusiliers? looks quite similar to the old RHF capbadge
  4. In WW2 the RA badge was same as is now. Square seperated diagonnally. Sure its not some kind of Engrs Local Militia?

  12. Sorry, should have said, could that badge have different lettering other than R.A.A.B.F ?.
  13. Look chum...go to British Armed Forces And National Service site they have over 200 badges you can compare it to. The only Artillery badge similar is for the Honourable Artillery Company which is based in the City of London. You best bet is to start looking at the Fusiliers Badges. The patch behind it probably denotes a certain regiment
  14. its not fusiliers --there badge is bigger,
