I need members help again please as my "Google Foo" has once again deserted me.

I need images showing the position of the Gloucesters back badge as worn by the Home Guard on their FS Cap

Hope someone can help

Regards

Thanks for posting the image. I can see the main badge on the font left of their caps, but not the small rear badge I'm guessing should be on the back right of their caps.

I just can't picture the image in my mind.

Would it be possible to e-mail me the picture if I send you an address?

sure thing the photo is very small though but if you enlarge it a bit should give you the right place it claims to be a gloucesters piccy but you can never be certain on photos from the net

Apart from going up or down or in the centre of the rear skirt fold there is no where else the badge can go. You will not get it into the main body fold at the back which on originals is very stiff material. Another picture here but still not that clear.
