Another Uniform identification
« on: Wednesday 17 November 21 21:16 GMT (UK) »
I have been sent a photograph by a relative found during the house clearance of a Grandaunt of mine. It was in the form of a postcard. On the rear was written "From daddy with lots of love" it was assumed that it would be my Great-Grandfather but it is nothing like the other photos we have of him.
My Great-Grandfather was in the ASC and this uniform does not match.
Can anyone identify the uniform in the attached photo
Thanks

I will have an educated guess, Royal Marines? Tropical uniform not an Army Service Corps cap badge, hard to identify even magnified.   But the star on the box on left? Jewish connection?

To view the entire photo click and open the image reference bottom of photo.

The only other family member it could be is my Grandfather. I don't know much about his service as an aunt has the details and for some reason is less than forthcoming with info. He served in WW2 in India and Burma. He road motorcycles and was a radio operator. I don't have any other information. The photo may be him but the Star is a mystery

Can you post an image of the back of the postcard?
Any printing on the back to indicate where the photo was taken?

I tend to agree with others now, British Palestine Police.

Below is the cap badge..

Dose anyone think it could be a Royal Signals Corps Uniform. My Grandad was a radio operator in the east in WW2 and its possible he was in the RSC.
The badge is attached
