Uniform

The AAGB uniform was very similar to that of the First Aid Nursing  Yeomanry (FANY). It consisted of a hat, blouse and skirt. The AAGB Blouse had a pair of collar dogs, the same as that pictured bellow, they were 30mm in diameter and secured with two lugs and a split pin. The buttons on the blouse consisted of the crossed flags logo. There was also a Cloth badge, as pictured bellow, that was worn on each sleeve. The cap badge was the same as the collar dog however it was 36mm in diameter with folded metal fixings instead of lugs.The belts used were mostly modified Sam browne’s. Driver Bacon wore her fathers first world was belt during her service with the AAGB.
