  1. Hi all I’ve recently received a pho from a close friend who’s grandma has passed away now he has a photo of a young gentleman who is believed to be a family member from the time of world war 2 as I believe the uniform to be from this period but what I’m struggling with is the insignia as I can’t find a example from any ww2 insignia list I’m new to this forum page is it possible to post a picture for reference or any one to contact me and I can send it as I would really like to help my friend find what outfit his relative served with thank you

    I’d say the photo post dates WW2 period.

    Everybody’s friend Wikipedia says “Royal” Pioneer Corps prefix was granted in November 1946.
