Identifying these WW2 Army badges
« on: Sunday 31 March 19 21:45 BST (UK) »
Good evening,

Is there anyone who can identify these badges and pins that were removed from my Grandfathers WW2 Army uniform?  It is assumed they are his although his brother was a Reverend based in Yorkshire and I wonder if the Chalice lower middle, may relate to him somehow?

Thanks for your help

That badge, lower middle, has an inscription "Do this in remberance of me", which I believe are Christ's words at The Last Supper?

The 2 sets of medal ribbons are the same; except the top 2 are faded a little.

Thanks for your help so far, he was Leonard Roy Howell B.1912, he was posted to Burma about 1943, I am waiting for his service record to come through.

Many thanks

The brooch or badge with the archer in the chariot and bird above is Egyptian in style.
