FS 281 Marks the 100 year anniversary of the NAAFI. This 32-page Special issue of our Journal tells the story of NAAFI, supplier to the Services of Canteens and more from its origins in the Expeditionary Forces and Navy & Army Canteen Board to its birth in 1921 until its Centenary. It illustrates examples of the wide range of insignia worn by NAAFI staff in peace and war, including its wartime work with the forces overseas as the Expeditionary Forces Institutes of the RASC and the Naval Canteen Service, looks at the work of the Women's Voluntary Services in NAAFI's clubs in war and peace and tells the history of NAAFI money and its use of the British Army's BAFs.
FS 282 Looks at the use of Cavalry and Royal Tank Regiment insignia by the REME personnel serving with them, explains the system of coloured shamrock emblems adopted by the First World War 16th Irish Division, finally illustrates a badge adopted by a Crewe TA unit in 1956, records a new wartime flash for a battalion of the KOYLI and provides details of the activities of the 1946 Army Mechanised Demonstration Column (AMDC). Its centre pages commemorate the 80th Birthday of the Air Training Corps and there are articles on wartime Civil Defence Emergency Committees and the activities, insignia and uniforms of the American Red Cross in wartime Britain.
