Remembered Today:

Shoulder Flash Help Please

Recommended Posts

Looking through some family memorabilia at the weekend I came across what I was told were my Grandfather's shoulder flashes.

Two cloth rectangles.

Ground of Light blue with a dark blue strip at the bottom;

Centred White Shield with red cross with down each side a yellow design which could be either clouds or lightening.

I've had a trawl through the Long Long Trail site for Division flashes but have failed to find it (or missed it). Can anyone throw light on what they might represent and signify?

Thanks

David

Yep, I'd definitely agree with that. FARELF, late WW2 and post-war.

Looking at the pages I'd agree too. Did GHQ Far East include India? If so it probably belonged to an uncle, if not I need to talk to my father.

Thanks for the help

No it didn't. GHQ India was its own concern. FARELF is more like Singapore, Malaya, Hong Kong, Borneo, Brunei etc etc.

OK my worst fears realised. Another mystery that needs resolving when time permits.

Thanks to you all
