    Could the badge above the jacket pocket be a stylised Maple Leaf indicating a Canadian Connection ?

    It also may have the appearance of a "Sweet Heart" badge worn by wives, girlfriends & female relations of a serviceman.

    The badge above the pocket usually relates to the unit the ATS member is attached to, I think this one looks like RASC

    Several photos of ATS members wearing the badges of the units they were attached to are in this link.

    Were they usually the units cap badge ?

    Thanks for confirming, that all makes sense of the other photos I've seen.
