    Here's a photo picked up today, as can be seen the soldier has a white or light coloured patch attached to his left sleeve. Does anyone have an idea what the 66 insignia means?

    Thanks Chip. I honestly didn’t think it’d be his unit number, not on his arm and had no idea it was air force. After having a quick squiz online I see they were a messenger pigeon unit that first appeared in May 1915 and only existed until January 1917.

    A shame someone has glued a photo to the back, hiding any information that might be there.
