Army Gorgets

Recommended Posts

These have recently come to live with me

I am having difficulty pinning down what Corps or Branch

The crown is a Kings Crown

Any assistance is tremendously appreciated

Hi David,

One Corps springs to mind. The Q.A.R.N.C , Queen Alexandra Royal Nursing Corps have Purple and Red gorgets, could they be from that service?

Regards Eddie

Red on red (not braided) is the standard unless you're the following

RAMC - Dull Cherry

RADC - Emerald Green

RAVC - Marroon Red

RAPC - Primrose Yellow

AEC - Cambridge Blue

RAOC - Dk Blue (changed to Scarlet in 1941)

REME - Dk Blue

Chaplains - Purple

So far these defy identification :banger::banger:
