S.A.C. Prop badge Police armband Marksman badge
S.A.C. Prop badge. Police armband. Marksman badge. This badge was issued for grouping shots on the target within a small measured area. In the late 1950s/early 1960s we used Lee Enfield rifles and Brens. (we reckoned that it was harder to sew the badges on straight than it was to 'win' them in the first place!)

Thanks to John Waller 3127604 for this Musician's badge from June - July 1950.
He says "A pair of these was the magic wand to the Station band which in turn was the means of escaping all the drudgery
like cook house fatigues, route marches, PT etc. This is the 'volunteer musician' badge and was worn on the upper arm.
The 'tradesmen musician' wore a different badge on the lower sleeve."
