An rare example of a set of early badges for the Air Raid Precautions Nursing Auxilliary.
These were worn on the ARP (Air Raid Precautions) nurse's uniform which consisted of a blue, A-line dress with a square collar. the fabric badges were sewn centrally to the chest with the letters 'ARP' and "NA" embroidered in red. A white cotton apron completed the uniform.
The last photo shows where the ARP badge was sewn onto the uniform, on the auxiliary's uniform, Both badges would be sewn one under the other so that both could be seen.
