    Hi all,

    I am not sure that I am posting in the correct forum however, I am looking if anyone could provide a picture to what soldiers where given when first joining up.

    I am making a commemorative medal frame for my great uncle who was killed during the war. Whilst we have some items of his, there are other things that I would like to put in it.

    He was signed up as a boy in 1932 to the QORWK as a musician and eventually went on to become a driver (was captured in Dunkirk in the retreat).

    Reading a journal article by a friend of his, he states when joining they were given (amongst other things) a range of badges and buttons, I have a cap badge and one brass shoulder title of his. But would like to add buttons and collar dogs as well, however I don’t really know which ones he will have been given at that time.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can provide any information about him if required.
