Very nice Robin. I have a similar embroidery to the RWF which is also probably a hopsital made item. I have a few other items to the RWF, too many to show here.

Very nice indeed. The downside, of course, is the fact that unless this bloke was a tailor before the war or a very quick study, he was in hospital long enough to get good at embroidery! One tends to forget how many of those wounded spent months and in some cases years convalescing, sometimes between repeated bouts of surgery. But lovely lovely work and surely with a story of its own if one could trace it.
