Arthur Stevens in 1941 - badge query & colourising request
« on: Tuesday 27 February 18 16:15 GMT (UK) »
Another image of my father taken after he joined the RAF & before going to the Far East

Can anyone help me with the badge/emblem on his right arm?

Would love a coloured version - he had black hair

Thanks
Keith

I think it is a Wireless Operator's badge Keith. RAF is close to my heart...My son is an interpreter..Flight Sergeant..RAF Air Crew.

Hi Carol - that would make sense - all I can remember him saying about his time in the RAF was that he was Ground Crew  :) & that he got his knees brown!

Aah! Carol - my dad would have loved this, he passed away 10 years ago this month so this is touching to see.

Thanks so much
Keith
