    Does anyone recognize this uniform? My beautiful mother in law died in 1949 and we have nobody to ask. She did work in a Munitions factory in 1942 when she married, but this looks like a regular army uniform.

    Thanks for your interest. There seems to be a central stem dropped down from the shoulder badge which does not appear in the ATS photo. I have found another photo which indicates also an insignia above the breast pocket. Is the lanyard of any importance?

    It is ATS badge see these other examples.
    I just Googled ''ats shoulder badge'' lots to compare.

    The flaming bomb most likely is Royal Artillery (although Royal Engineers had similar badge) , ATS wore a badge of unit they attached to above that pocket.
    see here.


    this page shows different units badges over breast pockets.
