I have never heard of such a badge and I have a book on such insignia. Most qualification badges were not actualy allowed in the ranks until the last year of the war. Exceptions were made throughout the war to NCOs and/or instructors, only before than. So I never recommend qualification badges to anyone unless they want to restrict their role.

In regards to ATS in medical, ATS who worked as orderlies in hospitals wore their usual SD, sometimes coveralls and worked under the nursing sisters. Some ran lab work, some seperated blood and plasma or assisted on wards as needed. The one thing you might see, and I have a photo some where, an ATS could get a RAMC collardog, brass for OR, and wear it over their left breast pocket in recognition of their duties to that corps.

And what's the typical, basic and widely usable insignia which ATS reenactor should wear on BD uniform?

Be very careful about loaning original items...also, please keep an eye out for :
*Still missing* Because some folks are devoid of an ounce of honesty or integrity.
Women's Navy Great Coat
Green floor length 1930s evening dress with sleeves set on net.
Blue and white rayon dress with peplum
Black velvet halter necked dress with silver shot thread skirt (may still have Harrods label in it) I have photos of all of these items and I know where they are in Scunthorpe, but would appreciate a nod if they come up for sale. [/color]

None! A pair of cloth ATS shoulder sliders will do nicely.
