WW2-Soldiers Wearing Plastic Economy Cap Badges


These soldiers of the 67th (York & Lancaster) Heavy Anti Aircraft Regiment Royal Artillery are operating a 3.7 inch heavy anti aircraft gun.  

Several of the soldiers can be seen to be wearing the World War 2 plastic economy issue badge in their berets which would date this photograph to between 1943 and 1945.
