After going over to Linux I've been trying to get the hang of Gimp by doing a couple of backgrounds.
Obviously too much time on my hands.

Army Scripture Service

Post  wfrad on Sat 18 Nov 2017, 8:53 am

I can safely say that I have never come across a member of this organisation.  
I had thought that the Army Scripture Readers were a thing of the past but apparently they are still hanging in there.

They are subject to Chaplain's recommendation and Commanding Officers' permission to visit soldiers and airmen in their accommodation, work and recreation areas. This is done with a view to befriending them and introducing them to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Maybe we were past the point of no return, marked down as a lost cause. Evil or Very Mad
For anyone interested in finding out more about them, here's their web page; https://www.sasra.org.uk/

The Carabiniers (6th Dragoon Guards) 1920.
Backing, the regiments facing colour was white, uniform tunics were blue instead of red like the other Dragoon Guards.
Belt colour, not sure, so I've used blue for the backing.
