    Hope someone can help. I've recently come across a photograph of a distant relative in uniform but I can not identify what unit it is as the unit name is not clear. At the start of WW2 he would have been 44 years old so too old for front line service, so this may be for the home front (he lived in Dorset, UK). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Regarding the medal bar I believe that he was awarded the British War Medal and Victory Medal after WW1.

    Just found this.
    "Seaborne Observers remain the only members of the ROC whose service during World War II entitles them to wear the HM Armed Forces Veterans Badge"
