Notes on Police & Sanitation Officer Armband

From the Henderson Homefront Archives and Collection.
ITEM:                   Cloth Armband, marked POLICE AND SANITATION OFFICER in felt cloth.   Scarlet letters on a gold colour background.  Measures 19.5 X 9 cm.
COMMENTS:       This armband is something of an enigma.  It was a dealer purchase, associated with VGC cap badges, and sold as being a VGC item. The colours are proper to the VGC,   and it may be that it was worn in an Internment Camp where English was spoken by the majority of the Prisoners.
